IntrCity SmartBus, the inter-city mobility platform, has announced its expansion in West India, focusing on Mumbai and Pune. The brand plans to add 50 more routes in the region. This strategic move is driven by a substantial 60% surge in demand this summer holiday season compared to last year. The West region, which includes Maharashtra, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Goa, has been at the forefront of this growth with an average occupancy rate of 98%.

Fleet Increase

The company is set to increase its fleet size by 300% within the year to meet this rising demand and enhance travel connectivity in these dynamic regions. Additionally, it will add 100 washroom-equipped buses in the west.

Intr City recently launched exclusive boarding lounges in Mumbai, Pune, Goa, and Indore. More boarding lounges are planned for introduction in the next quarter.

The company's expanded fleet will enable more frequent services, expanded routes, and improved travel experiences for passengers throughout West India.

Commenting on the expansion, Dharmesh Kumar, regional head (West) at IntrCity SmartBus, said, "We are delighted by the significant increase in demand in the vibrant West region. Our dedication to offering safe, comfortable, and reliable travel options remains steadfast. Expanding our presence in Mumbai and Pune is a strategic effort to meet our customers' evolving needs and ensure seamless connectivity throughout West India."

The service offers a fleet of luxury buses equipped with a host of amenities designed to provide a superior travel experience. Buses feature built-in washrooms, sleeper berths with ample legroom, and spacious seating to stretch out and relax, ensuring passengers enjoy a smooth and comfortable journey. Punctual, reliable, and safe journeys are ensured with real-time GPS tracking.

Recently, a new addition to its service portfolio was unveiled: the Digital Luggage Tag feature. The Digital Luggage Tagging system reduces the likelihood of luggage getting lost or mishandled, ensuring passengers can travel smoothly without worrying about misplaced belongings. This advanced system simplifies luggage handling and gives passengers peace of mind about the safety of their possessions.

IntrCity offers both train and bus services to budget travelers. Its flagship brand IntrCity SmartBus operates across 630+ routes in 16 states. Its companion brand, RailYatri, provides comprehensive train travel information, serving more than 14 million users monthly.
