Here I am going to show you how Easy Coach online booking can be done. However, before we can do that, it may benefit you to know that Easy Coach is a reputable bus company that plies route to mostly west of the capital Nairobi. Easy Coach also ferries passengers to Kampala in Uganda.
How Easy Coach online booking is done.
Currently on Easy Coach website, there is no online booking option. To actually book online, you will have to use their online booking partner.
Their online partners are BuuPass. Buupass is a company that provides an online booking platform for major company companies in Kenya. Though at their website, you will notice that they are currently working with Easy Coach, with other bus companies such as Modern Coast and Mash Poa set to follow.
To book your easy coach ticket online, just follow these simple steps.
Before you can proceed, have some money in your Mpesa Account. Enough for the bus ticket and transaction fees.
If you are connected to the internet, fire up the Buupass website by going to https://buupass.com/
This takes you to a page that looks this way.
Once here, choose the city you are leaving from and your destination. Also, remember to choose the travel date. Once done, hit the “Search Buses” button.
