Ticketvala.com has announced the launch of mTicket, the Mobile Bus Ticket solution to its bus ticket booking platform. Customers now can pay and receive bus tickets on their mobile phones too. This paperless technology solution avoids hassles in printing out of e-tickets and physically carrying the tickets to the boarding points.
This mobile ticketing solution is available for intercity bus services all across India. Currently, it’s operational on services by select bus operators and will soon be available widely.
Ticketvala.com already provides e-tickets and home-delivery options for bus ticket booking. The mTicket option, provides the customer yet another convenient option to book the tickets anytime and anywhere, and then also receive it on the mobile phone. Ticketvala accepts payments from Master card, Visa card, HDFC Bank card and OxiCash mobile payment.
The service requires customers to have a one time registration with Airtel’s mChek mobile payment, enabling the carrier to debit a particular purchase amount to the customers credit card account. An immediate response by Ticketvala.com sends the mTicket to the customer’s mobile phone further confirming the booking.
Customers can also book their tickets by calling the toll free number 1-800-209-2222. The users can pay through mChek and receive the PNR on their mobiles.
Ticketwala’s competitor, RedBus.in already offers mobile payment system in association with mChek.
