Good experience travelling in the bus. Staff behavior is good. Punctuality at the boarding point and destination. Water bottle and blanket was provided by them. Hygiene food is available by the staff. Air conditioning bus. Comfortable seats but no charging point in the bus.
I have travelled to Shimla from Delhi ISB Kashimiri Gate Bus Stop, boarded the bus at 9 Am in the morning reached Shimla at 5 Pm. The journey was an amazing one the bus we travelled is a Volvo bus it is an multi-axle sleeper 2+1. The condition of bus is good, there were many dhabas in the way, the bus took a halt after reaching Karnal had our lunch at one of the dhabas. The bus had charging points, pillows and water. We reached Shimla by 5 Pm the next day visited Kufri. Visiting Kufri is best if it's having snowfall, otherwise one will find nothing there.
But if you are going to travel Shimla for very first time, then you can consider visiting it, but I'll suggest you to visit other areas near to Shimla too.
Nice travel, good services. The Volvo was quite good and affordable price. Our destination was quite far but I enjoyed my ride. We stop some places too during my journey and bus staff are quite decent and helpful. This is the first time that I am traveling via bus, and I enjoyed it.
Himachal Road Transport Corporation bus service is excellent. Bus conductor, drivers and other stop members are very good. Driver drives bus very safely and in control. By mistake I forgot my bag on the bus the found my bag and when I called to Himachal Road Transport corporation helpline then they said they will call me and they called me said your bag is here please come.
I started my journey from the Indira Gandhi Airport. I choose your flight because I heard a lot about Go Air from my colleagues and really the experience which i feel was very very good. The service which is given by Go Air was very excellent. The behaviour of the staff are also very nice. I enjoyed a lot my journey in the shadow of Go Air.
