redBus.in, India’s largest bus ticketing company, have launched their official Windows Phone app. While they’ve had an Android app for a while, Windows Phone users should be happy to be next in line. The popular service offers tickets for over 12,000 routes across India with 700+ luxury bus operators.
The app is pretty solid, bringing all the features available on the website to the Windows Phone experience, while adding a few more exclusive to Windows Phone. The app introduces a new busBuddy feature that helps you manage your bookings easily from one place, and cancel your bookings should you choose to. You can find the exact location and navigate to your boarding point on a map.
Also, apart from the secure payment gateway for credit cards, debit cards, and net banking, customers can also book cash on delivery tickets just like their website. The app also allows you to pin ticket of your upcoming trip to your Start screen.
The Windows Store app offers additional features like directions to boarding points, bus tracking, journey tips, and history as well as instant notifications for bus location and special offers. Till December 31, 2013, Windows 8 users can get ₹75 ($1.20) off for a minimum purchase of a ₹500 ($8.05) ticket as part of launch promotion.
The app is available free on the Windows Phone Store (both Windows Phone 7.x and 8) and the Windows Store. So, whether you’re planning to visit family or a road trip, redBus.in is a fine app to have on your phone.
