Bus transportation in many developing countries is unorganized to say the least. As a result, much of the booking happens offline at the bus operator’s physical ticketing counter.
Indian startup redBus shows it’s possible to enable real-time booking across a wide selection of bus operators.
Touted as one of the most innovative young web companies in the world, the firm brings together Indian bus companies in the digital space. Now, it’s eyeing opportunities abroad, namely Singapore and Malaysia.
In India, redBus covers 67,000 bus routes. Now overseas, the startup has begun by aggregating 5,700 different routes in Singapore and Malaysia.
Currently, it claims a market share of a whopping three quarters.
