South India Focused Bus Ticketing Site TicketGoose Raises Rs 3 Crore

TicketGoose, a bus ticketing portal from Chennai, has raised Rs 3 crore from angel investors based out of US. The total value of the company is now US $7 million. The bus ticket booking site is promoted by Efficsys InfoTech India Pvt Ltd.

According to co-founder and CEO of the company Arun Athiappan, the funding will help strengthen and expand the technical infrastructure and will also give impetus in launching new features to ease the online booking experience, which in the long run may be a differentiator with regards to the competition.

TicketGoose, launched in August 2007, provides information like price, availability and booking facility for buses to more than 4,500 destinations in South India and currently has tie-ups with about 350 bus travel partners, with more travel options in Tier 2 cities of Tamil Nadu. Customers can book and cancel return tickets online.

While sites like Travelyaari, AbhiBus, and redBus offer exclusive online bus bookings, travel OTAs like via.com, Ticketvala, GoIbibo and MakeMyTrip also offer bus bookings along with rail and air travel bookings.
