easyBus has made an agreement with Entee Global Services to use the WebRes web-based operational and booking technology for the latest business venture from Stelios.
easyBus prices will start at one pound a seat. As with all easyGroup companies, the lowest prices will be available online on the basis of the earlier you buy, the less you pay and off peak journeys will cost less than peak period journeys.
"easyBus will be the easyJet of the road," said Stelios, "so I'm starting the company in the same way that I began the airline nearly ten years ago. easyBus will provide the brand, the online sales, the demand-based pricing and the marketing and Entee will supply their expertise in building and operating reservation systems," he continued.
easyBus will grow the market in medium distance bus travel in two ways. With its attractive pricing, easyBus will compete not only with other bus services but also with trains and cars as well as being an alternative to other activities. In addition, using smaller 16 seat minibuses, easyBus will be able to operate neighbourhood to neighbourhood routes, avoiding the expensive city centre bus stations at both ends of the route.
