By making it easier for international travellers to search, compare and book their city-to-city bus tickets online, Busbud.com opens up a whole new market – and a brand new revenue stream – for its partners.
It’s not always easy to find the right bus ticket online when traveling abroad — or even in your home country for that matter. Often times, the simplest way to figure out your options is to make a trip to the local bus station and buy your ticket in person. On the other hand, it’s a lot easier to find a plane ticket or rent a car online.
This is what LP Maurice, co-founder and CEO of Busbud, discovered in 2011 while backpacking across South America. He prefered travelling by bus, but in order to do so, he had to spend way too much time skimming through travel blogs and waiting in line at bus stations. “There must be a better way,” he thought. Busbud was born.
With more than a billion international tourists traveling the world each year, 80% of which plan their trip online, it was obvious that this was a huge opportunity.
Our mission at Busbud is to make long-distance bus travel as easy to plan and book online as any other mode of transportation.
Today, travellers can search, compare and book their bus tickets on the go on Busbud.com. It is the most comprehensive source of worldwide bus travel information, covering more than 10 000 cities in 90 countries, in many languages and currencies.
We are actively working on expanding our partnership network with bus companies worldwide. If you think your company might be interested in becoming part of the Busbud family, do contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org; we would love to hear from you!
