Haryana Roadways will introduce online reservation facility for Volvo buses in the state later this week.
"All formalities for the launch of the new service are almost complete. We are waiting for the 'code clearance' by the bank, necessary for the online facility,'' said Kulwant Singh Kalson, Additional Transport Commissioner, Haryana.
The Volvo bus service operates on the Chandigarh-Delhi and Chandigarh-Gurgaon-Delhi route. The Roadways had planned to start online reservations about one-and-a -half-year ago, but the problem of "compatibility with computers" faced by the NIC delayed the project. Things have fallen in place with the introduction of a web portal, Association of State Road Transport Union (ASTRU), said Anand Mohan Sharan, Haryana Transport Commissioner. "Online reservation has been quite a success in the Indian Railways, it will make ticket bookings much easier,'' said Sharan.
Instead of hiring, the Haryana Roadways has been running its own buses, since its disassociation with Libra Bus services in February last year. It has bought six of its own Volvo buses, costing Rs 69 lakh each. It plans to run eight such buses on the same route. One bus service would be started on the Delhi-Manali and Delhi-Katra (Jammu) route, said sources in the transport department.
