Kerala State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) has rolled out mobile reservation app ‘Ente KSRTC’ for hassle-free booking of seats in the long distance buses operated by it as part of improving the quality of services.

Although the KSRTC had an online reservation facility, the State transport undertaking did not have an exclusive mobile app for taking care of those reserving the seats through mobile phones.

This is being addressed through the rolling out of the Ente KSRTC. It will have all the latest payment facilities.

The mobile app, developed in association with Abhi Bus, can be used on Android and iOS platforms, would come in handy for the long distance commuters. It can be downloaded from the Google Play Store.

KSRTC has 10,000 online bookings per day. 80 percent of passengers use mobile phone for booking tickets.

‘Ente KSRTC’, the new app will be launched in association with ‘AbhiBus’, an app which offers online reservation facility.

In a passenger-friendly approach, KSRTC will start depot-based WhatsApp groups named Friends of KSRTC. Through these groups, KSRTC aims to seek the opinion of the passengers.
