IntrCity, India’s inter-city mobility brand, is leading the sector’s revival in India. The company has been consistently recording an astounding growth of over 50% every month as inter-city mobility gains momentum. The platform is doing 5 lakh bookings a month with an annualised rate of $80 million in consumer spending, as travel picks up across India.
IntrCity’s booking data shows that with the increased pace of vaccination and travel restrictions easing within India, the company is seeing traveller confidence returning to pre-pandemic levels for both leisure and non-leisure travel. With the current holiday and festive season, the sector is seeing a significant increase in intercity mobility bookings. During the Gandhi Jayanti and Dussehra weekends, the IntrCity SmartBus fleet was nearly full, and buses were running at more than 90% occupancy for the entire month of October.
Speaking about the company’s growth story, Mr. Kapil Raizada, Co-founder of IntrCity, said, “Our aim at IntrCity SmartBus has been to use technology to deliver a consistently superior experience to our customers. Our mobility operating systems play a critical role in maintaining high operating standards of our partner bsu operators, with customer safety being a key priority. The increase in bookings reflects our customers’ confidence in the platform, as well as the industry’s quick recovery from the epidemic, which promises to open up new growth opportunities for us and our customer base.
The company is targeting the SmartBus fleet to reach 400 this year. It is solving the huge problem of unreliability in inter-city bus travel by offering a safe and reliable experience to travelers. It helps private bus operators offer a guaranteed customer experience. The IntrCity operating system includes a suite of applications, namely the Operator Dashboard, Crew App, Consumer Platform, and IOT-based Fleet Analytics. The company provides a consumer IntrCity app for real-time tracking, ETA of destinations besides convenient sleeper beds, buses, Wi-Fi-enabled lounges at boarding points and trained “SmartBus Captains”.
