Bookme – Pakistan’s largest e-ticketing platform has launched contactless bus boarding for the added convenience and safety of its customers in light of Covid-19. As the global pandemic evolves, customers have increasingly accelerated their exposure towards digital platforms for their everyday transactions.
Conventionally, customers have to stand in long queues at the bus counter to get their tickets printed as the terminal staff is required to check each customer’s physical tickets before allowing them to board the bus. With Bookme’s disruptive new contactless boarding, customers do not have to wait in lines to print out their tickets.
They can simply show their e-ticket codes on their phone and board the bus directly. Bookme’s contactless boarding is currently live with Bilal Travels, QConnect and New Khan with a combined network of 30+ terminals across Pakistan.
Bookme is a completely digital platform as there is no human intervention at any touchpoint during the bus booking process. Moreover, there is no cash on delivery as all payments are made digitally via Bookme.pk’s digital payment gateway partners. Customers can simply make payments via credit/debit card, mobile wallet, or OTC through JazzCash and Easypaisa’s combined network of over 160,00+ agents across Pakistan and receive their e-tickets instantly.
Bookme has digitized Pakistan’s majority bus companies by bringing the offline brick and mortar buses into the digital space. Bookme is currently the leading online ticketing platform with a portfolio of 50+ bus companies including Bilal Travels, QConnect, Daewoo Express and Roadmaster, to name a few.
The contactless bus boarding is also available for passengers who buy their tickets via Bookme’s API partner network including JazzCash, Easypaisa, HBL, Askari bank and Bank Alfalah.
Bookme is also among the largest e-commerce platforms in the country, in terms of digital transactions. It is completely cashless and has already integrated with major payment platforms in Pakistan including JazzCash, Easypaisa, Habib Bank Limited, Alfalah and Askari Bank to ensure a seamless checkout experience for end-users.
Furthermore, Bookme.pk has a vast portfolio of 50+ bus companies and 200+ airlines integrated on its platform.
