Do You Make These Mistakes While Travelling By Bus?

April 29, 2022

We all travel at some point in our lives. Sometimes it’s for business, at other times it is because we need to take a holiday. We have all gotten so used to it that we don't give much thought to the things we do while travelling. We tend to repeat certain wrong things without even knowing. In view of that, I have compiled a list of mistakes that many of us make while travelling by bus. The first mistake has to do with what people do the moment they step into an interstate bus park. 


1. Walking into a bus terminal to buy a ticket

There’s absolutely nothing wrong with walking. It is known to be a great, mild exercise that is good for a wide variety of people. But that’s not what this is about. We’re talking about going to an interstate bus park to buy a bus ticket. It takes a lot of time and effort. Why waste all of that when there is a simple, easy way to do it? All you have to do is download the Transita app and use it. You will see a wide variety of interstate bus companies and their bus routes. Do you see why walking into any bus terminal is a mistake? 


2. Going with any available interstate bus 

This may seem like the easiest thing to do. There are so many bus companies to choose from. You just pick the ones you’re comfortable with and get going. As long as they are available and you can buy a ticket from them, you’re good to go right? Wrong. When you use Transita, you get a lot more options. Picking and choosing, which used to be a luxury, becomes a basic thing. You can choose the most prestigious ones or the most affordable ones — the choice is yours.

3. Waiting in long queues to buy a bus ticket

It will be difficult to find anyone who loves to wait in a long queue for anything. But when it comes to buying an interstate bus ticket, people seem to accept waiting for a long time as normal. This is another mistake. Why go through this stress when you can easily buy a ticket on the Transita app and in advance and get on with your life? Travelling doesn’t need to be so much of a hassle, you know. 


4. Paying too much money for a bus ticket

It is true that the various bus companies have different schedules and ticket prices. That gives you the opportunity to pay what you can afford. When you go to a bus terminal, you hardly take advantage of that opportunity. You’ll have to go from one park to another if you want to get a competitive price. That is why most people tend to settle for the first one they see. After waiting for so long in a queue, who wants to go to another park to start the process all over again? One of the biggest mistakes you can make is paying too much money for a bus ticket. When you use the Transita app, you’ll never make that mistake again. Many price options are available for you to choose from on the platform. 


No one is above mistakes. But when you are armed with the right information, you will never have to make some types of mistakes. Your peace of mind and savings in the bank will thank you as a bonus.
