A step towards transforming long distance travel in India
Gurgaon based bus aggregator firm Shuttl hasÂ expanded into a new category by introducing â€˜Shuttl Rentalsâ€™, its Inter-city travel service. The mobile based bus service which aimed at making daily commute easy for office-goers in Delhi and NCR region will now provide flexible packages to its commuters planning a weekend getaway outside Delhi/NCR. The new category is immensely dedicated towards saving the commuter from hassle for a weekend trip with friends and family. Shuttl will provide professional trained drivers with the best in class vehicles to make the journey comfortable and safe.
Group bookings can be done online through the official website www.rentals.shuttl.com and by emailing on email@example.com. Buses with seat capacity options of 12, 20, 28 and 40 seaters will be available for hire. Commuters will be required to make a nominal advance payment to confirm their booking. Another payment tranche has to be paid before embarking on the journey and the balance paid at the end of the trip.
Talking on the new expansion Mr. Amit Singh, Co-founder, Shuttl, â€œShuttl is diversifying from catering to daily commuters for office goers to now also providing rental buses for longer travels viz. quick getaways, city/inter-city events & long-distance outstation travel for all commuters. We are confident that with our expertise and an existing leadership position in the daily commute segment, we will be able to create new benchmarks of service and customer experience in the rental sector as well. We have witnessed a very encouraging demand in Shuttl rental bookings in the month of November itself and are expecting the booking numbers to go up during this time of the year being the wedding season.â€
He added, â€œWith 50+ long routes and more than 300 buses in Delhi & NCR region, we have made sure that our commuters deal with traffic woes in the capital by providing them with assured seat through the Shuttl app. By introducing Rentals, we plan to utilize our vehicles for long distance travels for larger groups or families during weekends and extended vacations. This step is yet another milestone to revolutionize mobility in India by providing integrated mobility platform to our customers.â€
Started as a pilot project in September 2016, Shuttl Rental is a service the company will utilize its existing inventory during the weekend as there is less office rush. It will be a value added service to its existing customers. Families and friends of existing customers and new travelling to longer distances can avail the services of Shuttl Rentals and customize their trip. Prioritizing the safety aspect, Shuttl Rentals drivers are also Aadhar verified and well trained to drive for long distances.
