|Inter-city Yolo Bus services in State from May 25|
GUWAHATI, May 22 - Yolo Bus, an inter-city transportation and mobility platform, will launch its bus services in Assam on May 25. A tech-enabled mobility provider, Yolo Bus is quickly becoming India’s largest intercity bus network, helping thousands of people reach their destinations, on time.
The Gurugram-based company has a strong hold in northern and southern parts of India where it is acclaimed for its on-time, safe ride experience, unique services, smart fleet, and tech-friendly operations. Now, the company’s primary focus is to expand its full-stack services with completely sanitized buses for every trip across Assam.
The company aims to start offering these superior travel experiences in Guwahati, Tinsukia, Silchar, North Lakhimpur and Duliajan. The buses will ply from Guwahati to other states as well. The inter-state routes would be Guwahati to Imphal via Dimapur and Kohima, Guwahati to Aizawl and Guwahati to Itanagar.
Speaking about the expansion, Shailesh Gupta, CEO & founder of Yolo Bus, said, “Assam is an important part of our expansion plans. With extensive on-ground research and smart network planning, we have figured out how to run a socially distanced transit system, logistically and equitably. Through smart network planning and dynamic price management, we will strive to provide travellers the safest travel options, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, with the best offers possible.”
With the COVID-19 pandemic, travellers are searching for safer and more hygienic options to travel. “We are going to charge the growth of the north-east region’s bus travel market with superior services. We have started hiring local youths in Assam and are investing in their training and development. We believe that this will contribute to skill development in the region and accelerate its economic growth over a period of time,” Gupta added.
