APSRTC Discounts in ticket fare if bought one month in advance | APSRTC Discounts Starting from April or May

APSRTC is trying differently in order to attract the passengers. It is going to implement the practice of giving bonus for advance booking, as like in air plane services. This plan is intended to be implemented firstly for the routes of longer distances. According to this plan, passengers are given 10% or at least 5% discount in the ticket fare if they book their tickets one month in advance for the distance of not less than 150 kms. This plan gets into force from April or May 2010 and the necessary arrangements are in progress. It will be spread to other routes also in the case of their success in this trial period.

RTC is arranging to provide mobile phones for conductors to give required information to the passengers of ‘palle velugu’ buses that run in rural areas. For this toll free number is going to be set up. RTC is consulting BSNL and other private mobile phone operators for this purpose. In RTC, there are around 7 thousand palle velugu buses running between rural areas presently. In the first stage, 40% of them will be provided with cell phone facility. This facility will be of use in the case of late arrival of bus. Just by calling to this number, passengers can know the related information by calling to this number.
