Now passengers can track arrival, departure of buses through TSRTC Gamyam app

HYDERABAD: Now, passengers commuting by buses operated by the Telangana State Road Transport Corporation (TSRTC) could track the arrival and departure of buses from anywhere using a mobile application.

As part of a project encouraging technology-enabled public transport services for passengers, TSRTC managing director VC Sajjanar launched ‘TSRTC Gamyam’ bus tracking app at a programme held in Hyderabad on Saturday.

Sajjanar said that the bus tracking app would help passengers to know the arrival and departure of buses at various stops across Telangana and nearby States to where TSRTC services were available, so that passengers could plan their travel to avoid unwanted waiting at the bus stops/stations.

"The app provides real-time tracking of all 4,170 buses of TSRTC, including Pushpak AC Airport buses and all Express with information about ETA (Expected time of Arrival) at boarding stage and selected destination to plan your travel schedule in advance. Apart from that, the app provides better coordination for travel plans by connecting you to airports or railway stations in the search," Sajjanar said.

The TSRTC MD said that the newly launched app also tracks the reservation buses based on Service No. provided in the reservation ticket. It has updated information about schedules and bus routes. In addition, the app improves the experience of travelling on bus by providing accurate information on bus arrival at the bus stop nearest to home, office, shopping, functions or any other location, he said.

‘Flag a Bus’ feature for women safety in 'TSRTC Gamyam' App

Sajjanar said that TSRTC, which was giving utmost importance to the safety of women passengers, had introduced a new feature called 'Flag a Bus' in the newly launched Gamyam app for their convenience from 7 pm to 6 pm. Explaining the features, he said that the 'Flag a Bus' feature would be very useful for women travelers in areas where there were no bus stops at night. Once the details were entered in the app, the green light would automatically appear on the screen of their smartphone. As soon as the light was shown towards the driver, the respective driver would stop the bus. With this, women could reach their destinations safely and securely, he said.

The TSRTC MD said that also, in case of an emergency, there was a facility to contact the TSRTC call center through the SOS button. This app had also been integrated with Dial 100 and 108. With this facility, information could be given directly to the police from the app. Passengers could report details of bus breakdowns, medical assistance, road accidents, etc. through this app. Officials would take further action based on those details, he said.

Sajjanar also said that TSRTC had initiated many revolutionary changes to bring the public transport system closer to the people for two years. In order to face the competition in the market, the TSRTC, which was reaching out to 45 lakh passengers every day, had added 776 new buses to its fleet for the convenience of passengers, the TSRTC MD said.
