This New Luxury Bus Service Offers Tickets As Low as Rs. 1

There is a new luxury bus company starting operations in Pakistan that will offer Lahore to Islamabad and vice versa trips starting at just Rs. 1.

Royals Express says that it will offer variable fares just like airlines do. Basically, if you reserve your seat in advance and early, then you will be charged less. The fares on your booked ride will keep increasing (Rs. 200, Rs. 400 and so on) until bus is half booked or more.

Simply put, if you are the first one to book a ticket on a particular ride, the first ticket will be sold for Rs. 1. The a chunk of tickets will be sold for Rs. 200, then another block of tickets for Rs. 400 and so on.

Here is how the bus fares will be broken down:

Thanks to bookme.pk, you can even select seat numbers and reserve your booking online for Royals Express bus service.

Royals Express told ProPakistani that its current fleet includes 16 buses and 30 more buses will be added within a month’s time.

With some high buses that feature 3 seats in a row, Royals Express promises to offer some additional features in their buses such as wash room, kitchen, on seat entertainment etc.

Current fleet offers tray tables, seat adjustment which helps in adding more space between two passengers sitting together, mobile phone charging ports and even onboard WiFi connectivity.

Royals Express said that it will soon offer in-journey meals for passengers, for which they can pay separately at the time of buying tickets online. The company said that while it has yet not finalized the menu, the in-journey bus meals would include burgers, pizza, fried chicken, snacks and more.

You can even add a cab service for the pick up and drop off to your destination.

Royals Express is launching tomorrow (March 9th, 2017) with two way service between Lahore and Islamabad.

Here are the features again:

  • In-bus WiFi
  • Plug-in power for your tablet and laptop
  • Play your favorite video games
  • Perk up your moods with our hot and cold beverage service
  • in-bus rest room
  • in-bus meals (billed separately)

  • Awesome it is.

  • Zaeem

    I used this bus and it is amazing.The best part is the charging port with each seat.Very comfortable seats.its better than Daewoo.

    • Ahmed

      How did you travel when its set to launch on 9th March?

      • Zaeem

        I traveled on last Sunday from Faizabad(Rawalpindi) to Lahore on their bus.Their buses are already running.Fare was Rs.800.

        • usman

          its true

        • Ayesha L

          800 Rs.? But the website shows the fare 1 Rs, 200, 300 Rupees. So why you charged 800RS.? and do you pay for the ticket in advance through easypaisa/Debit card?

          • Ayesha L

            and after the payment how they verify that you have submitted the fare?

            • Zaeem

              Madem in order to avail this promotion you have to pay in advance through Easypaisa/Debit Card..you will get messages and email from Bookme.pk and Royal Express about your confirmed seat ticket.

              • BilAl KhAn

                where to get tickets now.. successfully paid..

                • Zaeem

                  Show the received message from Bookme.pk on their terminal.They will issue you tickets on that day.

            • hamid

              why you are so thinking? it amount is only 1 Rs.

          • Zaeem

            Madem before this Promotion their fare was Rs.800 and i traveled on last Sunday and their promotion is starting from today.

            • Faisal

              @ Zaeem, Will it be enough? if I receive the confirmation seat message from bookme or I also have to take a print along me?

          • Muhammad Adeel Tariq

            same issue sister

          • Irfan Ahmad Sial

            that as for understanding

    • Arsalan Shah

      Sorry, with all due respect. At fight I thought you as a genuine commenter, but now it seems you’re a paid supporter, after reading all your comments.

  • Taha Najam

    Only Lhr-Isb. Meaning useless for 90% of the population.

    • Zawyar Ur Rehman

      Actually, its useless for 99.95 percent of the population. (Even if we consider that 1000k people (around 50% of the total lahori n islamabadi population ) actually visit the city.)

    • Kunwer Faran

      Are you kidding me seriously? You cannot test a new business model on every bus of your fleet. You have to run it on a small scale. And here by small scale we are talking of isb-lhr. The most frequent inter city travel route in Pakistan. Have some patience and appreciate the innovation that our entrepreneurs are bringing up in every industry.
      Speaking of appreciating entrepreneurship, a shout out to Propakistani for highlighting this. We woul not have seen this through main stream media

      • Muhammad Imran Habib

        Appreciated.

  • Ali

    Checked the website and everything, seems fake or some kind of malicious service!

    • Ali

      They also haven’t given any contact number, what type of service is it?

      • Zaeem

        03481117111

        • Ali

          Thanks!

    • Zaeem

      Don’t worry.They aren’t fake.i have already used travel on their buses and will be travelling tomorrow again.

      • Tanzeel Kiani

        Sir, WIth due respect, you might have traveled on the bus model same as royals are providing, what did they charge you?

        • Zaeem

          Tanzeel they are using latest yutong buses..very comfortable seats..better than Daewooo..Before this promotion,they were charging Rs.800 and now they are charging Rs.1,Rs 200,Rs 400 depending on how early you book the ticket in advance.

          • Tanzeel Kiani

            That i know very well Zaeem bhai!
            I was just asking did you meet any one who’ve paid Rs:1 for Lahore-Islamabad or vice versa? I mean their must be one person who had paid Rs: 1 for the first reserved ticket. As they claim they charge only 1 for the first booking made. and then the fares rise up untill the departure time.
            Moreover, what is the maximum they charge for, at the time of departure, if i reserve a seat on the terminal, what maximum will i have to pay for it?

            • Zaeem

              Bro i traveled yesterday from Lahore to Islamabad on their 12 PM bus by booking my seat in advance in Rs.2.
              Their maximum fare is RS.800.

            • Mohsin

              i have bought ticket for 1 RS

              • Tanzeel Kiani

                Wow! That is really very satisfying and i hope this service keeps their policies. Good Luck to their service and Thankyou Zaeem and Mohsin for your responce. Satisfied now and Thumbs Up for Royal Express! (Y) (Y)

            • Muhammad Shoaib

    • Zaeem

  • It would be a great service for university students to travel. They should start this service for Lahore to Faisalabad and vice versa.

    • brother, only first seat one can book for One Pkr then 200 for a chunk of seats, then 400 and then 800. Visit website. BTW admin can confirm as many people calling it a fake service

  • asad

    • Mubashir Ahmad

      How can you be so sure? Have you tried and tested it? If not then wait for the service and then make speculations.

  • Ayesha L

    only advance payment is acceptable? & If we pay in advance how will you verify it on the time of arrival? Can we also pay by hand on the time of departure?

    • Zaeem

    i saw several similar colored Yutong buses running on the motorway…the drivers were driving like crazy…really fast……the buses seem thin so four seats across seems like stuffing people…seem like ordinary seats…Bilal daewoo run similar buses…this form of pricing is funny however they donot look like luxury buses

  • Favad Qaisar

    Royalsexpress.com and bookme.pk are thieves.

    I booked bus for 0830hrs Sunday 23rd April from Lahore. When I went to station, they conveniently said the 0830hrs bus was cancelled and I can get refund from bookme.pk

    When I called bookme.pk they lady on the phone said she couldn’t issue refunds and I should send an email which was never responded back.

  • Dr Imran

    Pathetic service i am at the moment in the same bus e route islamabad. Charging ports are not working in most seats I had to exchange seat with another passenger to chage my ipad. The onboard wifi is not working. The service at most say sorry with a smile. I would give it 2 out of 5 that too as i got the seat exchanged.
