This move comes after a successful one-year run with its trucking platform, TrucksDekho.com. BusesDekho is aimed at filling the digitisation void in the passenger commercial vehicle segment. It also bridges the gap between manufacturers and bus owners in the domestic space.
Talking about the new platform, Robinder Gauba, Business Head for TrucksDekho and BusesDekho said, “While digitisation has been slowly seeping into the commercial vehicle space, there is still a huge void with respect to auto sites catering to this growing demand. With this launch, we are looking to build a holistic online ecosystem where fleet owners can research, compare and discover the best vehicle options to meet their requirements.”
BusesDekho aims to be a one-stop solution for researching, analysing and comparing buses, vans and other passenger commercial vehicles. On BusesDekho.com, users can search for buses, vans and autorickshaws from leading brands, check specifications, view pictures and videos, download brochures and get prices of models. Additionally, the users can compare specifications of vehicles and find the nearest dealers, service centers, spare parts and body makers.
With 189 models comprising of 156 buses, 18 vans and 15 auto rickshaws, BusesDekho provides a platform for buyers and fleet owners to gather information about their choice of products. The portal also contains verified addresses of over 2000 dealers, 2500 service centers, 2500 spare part centres and 312 body makers across India.
