Pune is located at a distance of 890 km from Nagpur. Pune, the second largest city in Maharashtra, is well-connected to Nagpur by rail, road and airways.
However, the best way to reach Pune from Nagpur is by rail. There are many express trains that run between the two cities that complete the journey in 14 hours. The major stations covered en route are Nagpur – 78 km -> Wardha Jn – 182 km -> Akola – 140 km -> Bhusaval Jn – 180 km -> Manmad Jn – 150 km -> Ahmadnagar – 160 km -> Daund Jn – 86 km -> Pune Jn. These railway stations have restaurants serving traditional Maharashtrian food. The railway canteens at the stations also offer vegetarian and non-vegetarian cuisine.
Baggage from two different flights were sent to one belt. It took literally 40 min for my baggage to come. And my baggage was only 1. 5 kg more than the required 7 kg. I did not carry any extra laptop. Still the airline people did not allow me to carry in
Very good experience. Bus quality and traveling experience is good, seats are in good condition. Staff behavior is also good. Bus provided blanket that was also in good condition i.e clean and in good condition. Timing is perfect, it reached at stated time no more halts in journey.
Train was 30 minutes late, but the timing of the train was perfect to travel to Pune. Overall it was a nice travel experience with this train. The train has a pantry car, so good food was available at reasonable cost, which makes the journey more enjoyable. Toilet was clean and all the facilities were provided along with the bedding.
Saini Travels are the best bus service and it's a clean and a good bus with cheaper rates. The travel was comfortable as compared to other travels. I always travel with Saini as they are the best at it's service and my priority for this bus agency is always at the top. Go and get the best experience.
Since train bookings are difficult in the last minutes and flight rates are high, we chose bus service over others. There is not much difference between a train and a bus in travel time when you are travelling from Nagpur to Pune. The Prasanna Purple Plus is a good bus. It has clean bedspreads and good comfort when it comes to buses. The only problem was the movie collection (only 3 to 4 choices) and the charging port was not working. My advice to the travellers is to carry your own laptop (fully charged) if you don't want to get bored.
