Founded in 2012, Busfor entered the market because more people were traveling by bus than by air or train despite the technological limitations associated with online bus ticketing. Adding a new layer of convenience to this dominant method of travel, the company enables carriers and bus stations to easily sell tickets to the customers searching for them online. Operating throughout Russia, Eastern Europe, the Commonwealth of Independent States and Thailand, Busfor partners with 5,000 bus companies to serve the growing base of 2 million customers per month.
