The North Bengal State Transport Corporation (“NBSTC”) is poised to release a mobile app for people to book bus tickets for long distance travel to North Bengal.
More than 500 buses are operational under NBSTC. Cooch Behar - Kolkata and Siliguri – Kolkata are popular routes for which demand is high for most of the year, an NBSTC official said today.
“Webel, a private company, is working towards developing this app,” said another NBSTC source.
Officials further added that the app will be specifically useful for students, who intend to travel to and from North Bengal on weekends and avoid the harassment of booking tickets.
