Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC), India, is going to launch e-Ticketing facility, known as Any Where Any Time Advance Ticket Reservation (AWATAR) before April end for bus commuters.
The system allows booking of tickets from any place for any destination. A commuter can pay the fare through Internet. KSRTC would launch a new website, ksrtc.in, to offer e-Tickets and other information to the public while the existing site, ksrtc.org, would be used for in-house information sharing. The new system would enable booking of advance tickets up to 30 days. A commuter could also exchange the e-Ticket with a regular ticket at KSRTC counters at the boarding point. The new system also allowed intermediate booking of advance tickets. The aim is to enhance the value of services to customers.
