Default Kerala SRTC Online booking portal getting ready ?

Hi, happened to come across this URL, which took me to the "future" website of Kerala SRTC for online booking

http://59.93.43.100:8080/KsrtcOnlineR/

Hope, this site comes up soon...

Yes! This is indeed the "upcoming" portal for online reservation. This portal is currently used by the staff at reservation counters to issue tickets. The online reservation option for public is slated to open before the end of this month.

yes, the site is up. I think it came up long back (atleast 2 months back). The link is http://59.93.43.100:8080/KsrtcOnlineR/index.jsp.
The interface seems very simply, yet effective. On a single page, you can see the seat avaialbility between 2 locations for the next 21 days. Compared to the KA srtc booking site where in you have to keep selecting even the bus type, KL srtc is much much simple. Seems like some fresher has developed this site as his first project.( when seeing the level of simplicity :-)

Thumbs up

A similar one exists for SETC also.

T N S T C.

As said for Kerala SRTC, only operators are given the privilege in this case too. Wonder when the public can avail this service, it can save a lot of time.

The simplicity is not because the site was designed by a fresher (The entire project is handled by company in Trivandrum, which has been working on the Kerala Government websites for a long time now). The simplicity is because KeSRTC has too little buses with reservation facility (Just about 180 services). Karnataka website was much simpler during its initial stages - the complexity came when the number of services went up, so did the number of users.

Long back, one could select "All Services" on the Awatar website, which shows up ALL services between the selected pair.

Excuse me - Kerala SRTC website is open for public. E-ticketing was launched over a month ago, and one can reserve tickets through the website. The SETC website has been running for over two years now - but there are no signs of online reservation for the public opening at all.

Are they publicizing the Kerala SRTC reservation portal ? If it is up and running, is the above mentioned link is the correct one ?

YES, to both questions.

The website is directly linked from the Kerala SRTC website. Plus, there are enough banners put up at reservation counters and bus stations about online booking - bus stations even have "How To" documents put up every where.
