How to Order Food in Train Online from Restaurants at Your Seat?
Zoop has introduced the service of online food delivery in train with authorization from IRCTC
New Delhi (India), May 19: Indian trains are a popular and convenient mode of transportation that offer numerous facilities to passengers. Despite this, travellers often struggle to satisfy their food cravings during their journey. Limited food options, poor quality, high prices, and accessibility issues are some of the challenges faced by passengers while travelling on trains in India. Many train routes have limited food options, forcing passengers to rely on the same food items for the entire journey, which can become monotonous and unappetizing.
Quality of food is often a major concern as it can be cold, stale, or unhygienic, leading to health issues. Moreover, train food prices in India are usually higher than market prices, which can be a burden for budget-conscious passengers. Additionally, the lack of a pantry car in some trains makes it challenging for passengers with mobility issues or travelling with young children to depend on station vendors for their food.
To tackle these issues, Zoop has introduced the service of online food delivery in train with authorization from IRCTC. As an authorized food delivery partner for IRCTC, Zoop enables passengers to savour a wide range of delectable cuisines from the convenience of their train seats.
