IRCTC signs a Memorandum of Understanding with Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation

Soon, passengers will be able to purchase tickets for buses operated by the Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation (MSRTC) via the IRCTC (Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation) website. This follows the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that the public sector IRCTC and the state-owned MSRTC of Maharashtra inked in this respect on Wednesday in Mumbai, in the presence of the chief minister Eknath Shinde and the minister of state for railways Raosaheb Danve. 

 

An official announcement stated that the IRCTC would incorporate the MSRTC bus ticketing link on both its website and mobile apps. Seema Kumar, chairman and managing director of IRCTC, termed the MoU a "significant milestone in enhancing passenger experience" and "simplifying their travel arrangements from a single point". "This integration will give the passengers the advantage of seamless access of last-mile connectivity via the IRCTC Bus Booking Portal, ensuring a smooth journey," Kumar said. 

 

Shekhar Channe, vice chairman and managing director of MSRTC, said that more than 75 percent of travelers book rail journey tickets on the IRCTC's ticketing portal, and now they can plan their rail and bus journeys together. The MSRTC ferries more than 60 lakh passengers every day across Maharashtra and has a fleet of around 15,000 buses.
