With RABTA standing for Railway Automated Booking and Travel Assistance, the app signifies a pivotal leap towards passenger-centric services and a modernized rail journey.
Railway Minister Shahid Ashraf Tarar formally inaugurated the RABTA app, underscoring the commitment of Pakistan Railways to redefine connectivity, rail transport and convenience for its passengers. Described as an “innovative platform to revolutionize the way you plan & experience your journey” by PR Secretary Mazhar Ali Shah, the app marks a significant stride in bringing travel planning to the fingertips of passengers.
