The Journey –‘redBus.in’
redBus was supposed to be a non-profit solution which the founders intended to hand over to the bus operators for better & convenient bus ticket bookings. Started in 2005 by Phanindra Sama & few of his very close associates, redBus today is India’s biggest & largest platform for bus ticketing. Hardly anyone imagined it to be so successful that today it’s a top notch platform satisfying many.
We all face problems when it comes to ticket bookings. The long queue & hassle that comes with it is even more frightening. Phanindra Sama felt that same pain & frustration. Even after booking a ticket, you never get the desired window seat. Thus came in picture ‘redBus.in’. There were initial obstacles like any new revolutionary idea faces. Major Travel Operators were interested but scared as Indian back then were not that willing to use internet as a payment mode. Though, with further efforts time changed for better & the redBus journey started in 2006 with few lesser known travel operators. But that was just the beginning.
