Well one can't expect much on the route between Junagadh to Sasan gir as there are very few options available. But I must stay that it doesn't disappoints you. One must go to Sasan gir if in Saurashtra. Th bus ride can be exciting because the route is a Nice one and there are boards everywhere saying to be beware of local wild animals. The animals are there on the route and if you are lucky enough, you can spot a lion or some other animal.
Nice bus and staff. Every people who sat around me spoke nicely to me. GSRTC is the leading transport of Gujarat. All over the area it was covered. Good speed, nice seats and good windows. Good to see and watch in travelling. Nice experience to travel with Gujarat transport. Excellent job.
The bus is very clean and safety provided by the organization to us and the best thing is travelling very smooth. They give time to time dinner and lunch and also breakfast to all the passenger and also good facility of the hotel booking. The new experience and best joyful journey.
Main problem is there are less options available to travel from Rajkot to Diu. No private bus options. We have to travel by GSRTC only. So have to manage with their comfort!!! There must be some private bus operators so that we can have multiple options.
Name is enough to describe the experience. You can try private buses there are many sleeper buses. All are departing at night and reach the destination in the morning. Its good go by private bus and it's safe too. State Government bus is good but one gets tired. Instead go by private travellers just check on ticket price as it may vary. Want go at reasonable price then prefer State transport.

First of all GSRTC new bus is awesome and really comfortable. I travel in non a/c bus, but it was awesome and comfortable. The sitting arrangement was good, time between two cities very less in new buses. The service of bus was very good. It also announces every station name so unknown people knows the place that they want to go.
I and my friend has visited Saputara in last Diwali vacation. We have booked our bus from Gujarat State Road Transport Corporation (GSRTC) online website to Daman. In Daman we have stayed for one day from their and we have started our journey to Saputara. It was a nice experience. The roads were curvy, lots of bumps and foggy weather. Sometimes at curves we afraid that our bus were not fall into valley. Bus driver was very nice. He has a very nice skills for driving in such curvy roads. But one thing they want to improve is bus frequency. From Daman all the buses are coming already packed. We have to wait for two hours to get bus with seating capacity. So my suggestion is to go Vasai from Daman as from their it is very easy to go Saputara.
Overall, good experience. GSRTC is improving and getting better. Bus stands are also getting cleaner and the best part is that with minimum fair you can travel a lot. Reached destination on time and getting food at various bus stands. Behaviour of driver was also good.
I travelled in this bus to reach Gandhinagar. My cousin is an employee in Gujarat State Road Transport Corporation (GSRTC) so I called him to book my ticket in urgent and he did it so. First of all I want to say that the travelling experience is too good. I loved the speed and the bus is clean and neat so I enjoyed it.
Gujarat State Road Transport Corporation (GSRTC) bus is not cool for outsiders. But it is quite good for localities. It has no facilities and it is not fast as private travellers because of some safety reasons. The ticket price is nominal but Volvo of GSRTC is brilliant and it has all the facilities like Wi-Fi, TV, push-back seats. So, you can go for Volvo but it is somehow costlier.
