What’s a Byte pass?

A Byte pass is a paperless electronic document with a unique booking number that neatly replaces the hassles of a paper ticket.

When you purchase a Byte pass, we email it to you after the booking is complete.

We are going paperless, so you can just show us the email confirmation with your booking id on it, which will suffice for all validation, along with a government photo identity proof.

  • Passport
  • Driving Licence
  • Service identity card of state or central government
  • PAN card
  • Aadhar card
  • Passbook issued by bank or post office

  • Pension Document with Photograph and authenticated Photo Voter Slip issued by the election machinery
  • School/College ID Card (For Children Under 18 years only)
  • Birth Certificate (For Infants and Kids upto 3 years)

 

What is the maximum number of seats I can book?

Depending on availability, a maximum of <n> (check if there is any limitation) seats can be booked at one time. If you need to book for more than <n> travelers you will have to re–complete the booking process for the additional travelers.

I’ve been getting zero results on the search page. What gives?

Clear your browser cache and try the search again. If you still don’t get any results, it may either be because we do not have a Citybyte for your particular requirement yet.

 

I entered my payment details and hit submit, and all I got was a blank screen! I got charged but don’t have a Byte pass. What now?

We’re really sorry for the inconvenience. Please don’t worry. We’ll call you within four hours and complete this booking offline. We suggest you do not try booking again as you may end up getting charged twice. If you’re really impatient, call us at and we’ll help you fix this immediately.
