Ticketvala crosses 1 million bus ticket transactions

Ticketvala, a bus ticket distribution platform, has announced that they have crossed 1 million in transactions since launch. The company was started by Haranath Lokanadham, a 20-year management veteran in IT, shipping and travel.

Since its launch in July 2007, Ticketvala.com enabled customers to book tickets via the website or call center and also offers the option of home delivery of tickets in select cities.

Thus, the company has built a distribution platform which provides value to all the players in the supply chain. Bus operators can use the system and increase their operational efficiencies. The uptake of this technology by the industry has been rapid and early adopters of this technology who are reaping the benefits include Konduskar Travels, Gujarat Travels, Amsons Travels, Kesineni Tours and Travels, among many others.

“We foresee a phenomenal growth in this market and believe that the changing paradigm of the consumers and bus operators will help boost the market. We are also delighted to see the eagerness with which the bus operators are adopting and adapting to new technologies and systems. It is a clear endorsement of our belief that there is huge opportunity and potential to organise this sector using technology,” said Haranath Lokanadham, President & CEO, Travis Internet Pvt Ltd, the parent company of Ticketvala.com.

The service offers travelers an unprecedented level of convenience and choice for booking bus tickets. The traveler gets complete detail and wide choice of departure timings, AC, non-AC, choice of seats and service providers – all at no extra cost.
