Best thing is that the layout not only shows the arrangement of seats but it also shows the seats already booked, seats that are exclusively reserved for ladies, as well as the route of the bus. It's time to select the seat.

After selecting your preferred seat, for example windows seat, you need to select the pickup and drop-off points. Fare might vary slightly depending on which location you choose to board the bus and which location you will get off the bus.

Next step is to actually book the ticket. Here the system will ask you to login, if you haven't done so, or you can also continue to book your bus ticket as an ''anonymous" or guest user. In any case you will need to provide your ID proof. Any one of driving license, PAN card, passport, ration card, student id card, voters card number can be mentioned as valid id.  Also you will need to provide your mobile number. Both email address and mobile number will be required in case you wish to cancel your tickets anytime later.

All that remains is to do the payment by means of your credit/ debit card, internet banking. System will automatically forward you to payment gateway in order to complete the ticket booking process. Once the payment is done successfully you will get the ticket with PNR number.
