    redBus, a MakeMyTrip group company, announced the launch of redRail app and expects the segment to contribute 10-15 percent in gross ticketing value of the company in 3-4 years. "The launch of standalone redRail app comes at an opportune time as there has been a steady increase in digital adoption across both bus as well as train segments over the last two years. The online train ticket booking market, with nearly a million daily transactions across the country, offers a huge opportunity," redBus CEO Prakash Sangam said in a statement.
