State/City transport authority often faces big challenges in ticket sales which is the major/ only source of its revenue. With electronic ticketing systems with no GPS and GPRS connectivity it is not possible to do online reservations and seat occupancy & bus location tracking information is not available in real time.

Government transport authority also struggles in ticket sales because of less number of reservation centers, remotely located reservation counters in rural areas. Also there is problem of revenue leakage due to manual reconciliation process. All manual processes are man power heavy and with no optimal staff utilization.
