Do I need to take a printout of the bus ticket?
The policies vary from one bus operator to the next. As you would find at the RailYatri.in website we have demarcated the operators who support mTicket. In such instances, all you need to do is show the SMS sent from our end and make the journey. While there are other operators who would ask for ticket printouts, before letting you start the journey. In such instances you need to take a printout of the mail we have sent to your mentioned email ID.
What documents should I carry while boarding a bus?
Just showing mTicket or ticket printout does not guarantee a journey. You would be asked for identification prooof before boarding. So, make sure you carry a valid ID proof in the form of Driving license, Student ID card, Aadhar Card, Company ID card, Passport, PAN card or Voter ID card.
What happens if I do not receive bus ticket booking confirmation email or SMS?
If you do not receive the confirmation mail or SMS from our end there may be a number of reasons responsible for that (wrong contact details, technical glitches, etc.). In such a situation there is abslutely no reason to panic. The ticket has been booked as long as it shows on the Order History page of the RailYatri app or website. You can also get in touch with us, requesting a resending of the Confirmation mail or SMS.
What happens when there is a change of bus?
We try to provide what we promise upfront, but there are many unavoidable instances when we have to make an exception to this rule. If the bus operator changes the bus type (due to certain unavoidable circumstances), RailYatri.in will refund the differential fares to the customer. But the customer needs to raise this issue within 24 hours of the journey.
How would I be intimated if the bus is cancelled, timing is changed or the route is differed?
Again, due to certain unaviodable circumstances our bus operators might have to change the timing, route or cancel the bus service altogether. In such instances, we will send SMS and in-app notifications to the customer, as soon as we receive such information. However, we are not responsible about the timeliness of the information if the customer provides a wrong contact details or keeps the mobile switched off.
What to do if I face any problems while booking bus tickets?
If you are having problems in bus ticket booking you can get in touch with our customer services between 8 AM-9 PM or shoot a mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
