CatchThatBus, Transnasional launches home delivery option
By Digital News Asia December 8, 2016
- Bus-ticketing app allows tickets to be purchased online and delivered to customers on a COD basis
- Operators include Transnasional, Plusliner and Nice
CATCHTHATBUS has launched a new Home Delivery option, becoming the first bus-ticketing app available to provide such a feature.
Customers are now able to purchase their bus tickets from an array of operators under Konsortium Transnasional Bhd (KTB), which includes Transnasional, Plusliner and Nice.
The delivery of the bus tickets would cover the areas within the Klang Valley, on a cash on delivery or COD basis.
This new feature is a product of the collaboration between CatchThatBus, KTB & MobileWaiter, which is the delivery partner.
MobileWaiter provides the service of delivering the bus tickets purchased on the mobile app to the customer’s doorsteps and collecting the cash payment.
CatchThatBus enables customers to view real-time information on seat availability and schedules, and purchase tickets using safe payment methods like credit card, debit card, online banking and now, cash, all in the comfort of their own space, timing and convenience.
How it works?
Step 1: Download the CatchThatBus app from Google Play Store or Apple App Store
Step 2: Select your trip of choice from your favourite operator. Make sure you book two (2) days in advance of your travel date.
Step 3: Select cash on delivery as your payment method
Step 4: Enter your delivery address and preferred delivery time
Step 5: Make cash payment upon receiving ticket
KTB chairman and managing director, Dr Mohd Nadzmi Mohd Salleh, said, “We always value innovation and excellent customer service in our transport business operations. With this collaboration with CatchThatBus, we will be able to serve our customers better by providing another avenue and convenience for our customers to purchase bus tickets for their travelling needs.”
According to CatchThatBus CEO Viren Doshi, “This coming year will be exciting and interesting for us. We are looking beyond traditional online payment options to reach out to a wider audience of travellers who take the bus, but may not be able to pay online. We are also looking to expanding beyond Malaysia and Singapore. Our next goal is to be the #1 go-to company within Southeast Asia and other territories.”
CatchThatBus is available for download on Android and iOS phones, as well as on the website at http://www.catchthatbus.com. For more information, please visit www.catchthatbus.com or email [email protected]
