Bileto, the most modern timetable tool, launching under Blesk.cz

Bileto is a service which seeks out public transport connections between any points in the Czech Republic in the most accurate possible way. It combines trains, buses, urban public transport and even boats. Passengers need not know the names of stops; the application only needs to know the position, address or name of the destination and it will find the optimal transportation method including calculating walking times between stops, and it even offers the option of purchasing tickets for some carriers.

Czech News Center media organisation through its sister company CIL (Czech Innovation Lab), part of the Czech Media Invest concern like CNC, is expanding its portfolio to include a new type of service for internet users. Blesk.cz now provides access to the Bileto timetables service, operating on a platform originally developed by the start-up of the same time within the Rockaway Group. Investment group Rockaway had Bileto in its portfolio for the past four years, during which time it actively worked on its development. The timetables now offer the most modern route planning method, connection finder, and for some carriers even a connection to their e-shop to buy tickets. All comfortably and clearly at one place.

Bileto comprises two sections – timetables being one, and a booking and distribution platform for carriers being the other. Online Director Matěj Hušek adds: “For us, Bileto is on the one hand a way to diversify revenue, and on the other hand we want to offer users of our websites a new user-friendly service.”

As a sales and distribution platform, carriers in particular will appreciate Bileto. They can manage their timetables, prices and information on capacity of links at one site, with all other sales sites receiving the information automatically. Adam Raška, Bileto CEO, elaborates: “We sell tickets through various channels. We work, e.g., like air ticket systems. We have constructed the system such that carriers can manage everything at one place but have the maximum number of ways to sell their connections and services. Sales can also be made through the application used by stewards or drivers who then can also sell tickets. We are administrators of the booking system. We are offering carriers a new sales channel. It’s a shared timetable service whose objective is to go so far that we can sell tickets directly.” 

Bileto is easy to use yet offers everything you could appreciate when travelling anywhere. It endeavours to be more modern, clearer and smarter than other timetables on the internet. It offers intuitive controls without unnecessary details, and adds useful items such as a button for a quick search of the last connection on a particular day. Bileto is also always up-to-date so it can provide the most accurate information possible – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. All journeys go through Bileto.
