Pune-Manduadih Gyan Ganga SF Exp fills up within first 9 days
Pune, 10thAugust, 2018: Popular travel app – RailYatri has launched yet another useful feature called Rush-o-meter. This feature makes sure that eager passengers do not miss out on buying confirmed tickets. Using historic data and Machine Learning algorithms, RailYatri predicts the speed of ticket booking in all long distance trains; i.e. how soon tickets get sold out on each train. Depending on this booking rate, in some trains, tickets are sold out within 10-12 days after booking opens while in others, tickets are available for months after booking opens.
Mr Manish Rathi, CEO & Co-Founder said “This feature significantly increases the chances of getting a confirmed ticket since travellers will now know the exact time within which they have to book the available tickets. So, if there are 53 seats available, the feature will predict how soon these seats would be sold out. This works as an alarm for travellers who are planning to buy tickets for future travel.”
The chart below shows that among all trains starting from Pune, 22131 Pune – Manduadih Gyan Ganga SF Express gets filled up fastest; i.e 3A tickets from Pune on this train gets sold out within 9 days after booking opens.
