redBus has in collaboration with private partner bus operators that enjoy a very high customer
rating on their platform has rolled out the ‘vaccinated bus’ service. This service will be rolled
out across 600 major routes in the country, which guarantees passengers to travel with
vaccinated co-passengers and crew.
Booking a ticket on this service requires travellers to have received at least the first shot of the
COVID-19 vaccine and they must submit proof of the same at the time of boarding, redBus said
in a statement. In order to ensure proper execution of this new system, boarding for
passengers who book their tickets on vaccinated buses will only be allowed once they produce
their ID proof and vaccination certificate at the time of boarding. The travelers will also be
informed of these requirements before the journey through e-mail and SMS. The partner bus
operator staff will physically verify the vaccination certificates/ ID proofs for all adult
passengers before boarding, with the exception of passengers aged below 18. Passengers who
fail to provide the necessary proof will be denied boarding.
redBus Chief Executive Officer Prakash Sangam said, "According to a survey that we recently
undertook with our customers, 89 per cent of the respondents said that they prefer to travel in
a bus which had all the bus staff and co-passengers vaccinated with at least one dose of the
COVID-19 vaccine."
