The Bus Travel Industry
by admin, July 4, 2020

Looking at the real-time problems of Indian travelers, who prefer buses to reach out to the desired destination, the bus services need to formalize and modernize in India, which has so far been mostly fragmented and with many inefficiencies.

Right from filthy buses, frequent breaks during the journey,  unnecessary delay, unlawful ticket prices, unprofessional staff behavior, travelers suffer a lot.

In an attempt to eliminate the bus travel problems, YoloBus in its constant endeavors likes to cater to bus travel and transportation-related problems with the use of technology and Artificial Intelligence.


Here are some of the key requirements YoloBus is considering problems related to traveling:


1.) Safety:  YoloBus continually endeavors to make your journey safe and on-time because we value time and want you to make the most of your time. We also wish the travelers to stay connected to the family members during the journey. With the use of AI and technology, YoloBuses are equipped with the cameras and live location trackers so that traveler can share their live travel locations with their loved ones and keep them informed. Equipped with CCTV cameras on buses, our team does online surveillance on every movement happening on the bus. YoloBus ensures safety while monitoring every movement happening on the bus to give passengers travel that they deserve.

2.) Flexibility: is a key requirement. Travelers need to be able to use buses for multiple trips – in succession. Rigid or limited timetable and set routes can make the tedious experience buses less appealing and less effective. To cover that up, YoloBus has increased the frequency of buses on the same route so as to cover as many passengers traveling on the same route.

3.) Convenience:  is a vital aspect when it comes to traveling by bus. Having to wait for a long time, especially if it is in the scorching sun, when it is raining, in chilly winters or may be all alone in the dark, deters people from using buses. Bus Services must be easily accessible and the fairs should be suitable for the pocket. Similarly, the boarding points and bus stops should be sheltered properly, comfortable, attractive, safe, and easily accessible, visible, and (not just glorified billboards).

4.) Seamless ticket bookings: With the help of smartphone and Yolo App for bus ticket bookings, timetable scheduling, bus location identification, planning journeys, navigate the bus movement, using real-time journey maps, pay online, SOS buttons inside the bus and on App for any emergency during the journey are some of the features that YoloBus offers to its travelers. YoloBus also gives a flexible drop-off falling on the route while our journey to the destination (off-peak or during the night) can better integrate buses into our busy lives.
