Targets millennial working professionals

RailYatri, multi-modal intercity transportation network, has launched its branded ‘IntrCity SmartBus’ on Bengaluru-Chennai route.

The company recently launched IntrCity Smartbus service on some popular routes starting from Delhi to Lucknow, Kanpur, Shimla, Chandigarh, Amritsar, Ludhiana, Jalandhar and Manali.

The RailYatri is projecting the IntrCity SmartBus model as a powerful substitute for the trains and a convenient mode of transport for the modern-day budget traveller.

“IntrCity promises to deliver on its four core virtues – timeliness, trained professional drivers, safety and hassle-free boarding assistance. In fact, the company is taking a step further and promising a 50 per cent refund if the scheduled departure gets delayed by more than 30 minutes. The unique ‘Flexi-ticket’ feature allows users to change their travel even at the last minute,” Kapil Raizada, RailYatri’s Co-Founder.

Punchuality

“While conceptualizing, we figured out that ‘last minute change in plan’ is one of the biggest pain point for the passengers. This is usually followed by cancellation and refund related hassles and multiple follow-ups. We gave them the flexibility to change their travel plan at the last hour. IntrCity SmartBus passengers can avail this facility up to 60 minutes before the scheduled departure of their bus,” he added.

Like RailYatri’s other IntrCity SmartBuses, the ones plying between Bengaluru and Chennai will also feature train like comfortable berths, free wi-fi, on-board entertainment, real-time online streaming of live location, CCTV feed, clean linen, mineral water to name a few.

Manish Rathi, CEO & Co-founder, RailYatri said,“The inter-city bus travel in this region is better organized than other regions but still lacked what the millennial of this city needs. Current bus aggregators were not able to solve regular commuters’ issues like on-time departure, convenient boarding and drop-off points, flexibility to change plans at the last hour. We thought of solving these issues and thus created a hassle-free, affordable, convenient and safe travel. You can book your bus seat and travel on the same day – all within just a few clicks!”
