As the reality of living along with the virus seems to sink in, people are eager to undertake travel immediately to meet their professional, personal and academic requirements. A majority of responders (63% ) gave a thumbs up to #AbhiTravelKarenge as soon as services start, while 16.8% said they would wait for initial rush to taper, only 14% said they would travel on need basis while the rest said they would wait for 2-3 months or wait for more guidelines from the Government. The respondents about 60% of them also anticipated an increase in travel fare.

AbhiBus.com, a leading online bus ticketing aggregator in India, has conducted a nationwide online bus travel survey to find out whether people are willing to travel immediately after the lock down is completely lifted or are they looking to postpone their journey due to increase in the COVID 19 cases. Named as ‘India Bus Travel Survey’, the Abhibus travel survey has surprisingly noted that the people are very optimistic and not shying away from travelling immediately once the travel restrictions are lifted.

However, they preferred to have a sanitized environment which enables a safe journey and while respondents prioritized social distancing and cleanness and hygiene as critical requirements, factors like increase in cost of travel fares and on time and reliable service figured later in their list.

Commenting on the survey findings, Mr Rohit Sharma, COO, Abhibus.com said, “We have received an overwhelming response for the survey within a span of 48 hours, 3,000 plus respondents say they have their professional, social and academic obligations that need to be fulfilled. There seems to be consensus amongst the respondents that life needs to go on, lockdown cannot be a way of life and #AbhiTravelKarnege seems to be their call. At the same time respondents were very clear about the need for safety, social distancing and many even were looking for COVID related insurance.” 

Survey Findings: Clearly #ABhiTravelKarenge is the trend

Majority of the people (close to 80%) responding to the survey said that they are willing to travel immediately once the lock down is uplifted as they have urgent travel plans which have been pending for a long time. Professionals who are also planning their travel to continue their operations. Otherwise, the business continuity will be in danger, they think.

The passengers are, however, concerned about maintaining social distancing during the travel. More than 80% of them have expressed their concern about social distance and all of them want to make sure their personal hygienic materials such as hand sanitizers are being carried with them. Almost all of them want to eat only home cooked food to avoid any exposure to the external environment.
