It is recommended to book tickets early, if you are planning to go Amritsar. There are premium trains like Shatabdi Express or Volvo buses are fastest way to reach Amritsar. In case you have not booked tickets early, go direct to Kashmiri Gate Bus Adda, and try to find bus either direct to Amritsar or Jalandhar. Jalandhar is 80 km before to Amritsar and there are few govt buses on Delhi Amritsar Route. You can also book tickets or buy last minute ticket for private buses, they run just nearby area like Majnu ka Tila or Kashmiri Gate.

Whenever I listen about Jallianwala bagh all those innocent killing stories come to my mind. Since my schooldays, I have always been criticizing this heinous massacre. Where the cowardice killed our people. The premises of Jallianwala Bagh has still that well where people got martyred, those...more »
Excellent & very cooperative & honest staff, they treated me as family members, I recommended to all my friends & clients always try to travel through Govt Bus Service PUNBUS if you want safety in travel. They provide much better services from other Private Bus Services.
In 2nd week of November 2015, I went for a trip to Amritsar. I reached Jalandhar Bus stand by 7:30 morning and we got a PunBUS(non AC), it was foggy climate outside with cold breeze and outside it was all in all a perfect weather as we had imagined. The roads were quite good after initial 5-8 kms, where roads was under being upgraded for flyover and maintenance work. Within approx 90 minutes, we reached Amritsar and deboarded for further journey. All in all a pleasant ride.
the route was long but it is full of joy. The bus service is good and its staff is friendly. The bus is full ac. The sleeper is also available in it, so we are not so tired by only sitting. Seats were of good quality. The movie which is played on led makes the journey good.
We came to Thiruchendur in Government transport from Madurai. The road was good, so we reached the destination quickly. The bus stayed in Tuticorin for long time, meanwhile we had some snacks. Overall, the journey was good. The Bus Stop is near by seashore as well as restaurants.
Travelled to Nawanshehar from Ludhiana by bus and experience was okay. I got roadways and no doubt, no A/c buses are available in this route. Its difficult to travel without A/C in this summer. Well seats are okay. Bus drop me on time over there. Other on way things are boring.
Firstly the bus was very nice. I love the arrangements of the seats. The bus stopped at our required destinations with giving breaks for dinner. At last when we reached Poona we felt that journey was so comfortable. We travel through all the places in Poona but can't forget the travelling experience of this bus. Best bus ever!!!
I was in Jalandhar to visit Lovely Professional University for some academics purposes and also I need to visit Chandigarh also. My friend suggested me that from outside the university I can get a Volvo AC bus direct to Chandigarh which are much convenient and good way from Jalandhar to Chandigarh and also it took less time as compared to local buses. So I boarded a bus from out side at around 3 and he was right. Bus was really good and speed was much more than normal buses as well as it did not stopped much so I reached before night.
Journey to Shimla through bus was very adventurous and wonderful experience. All the beauty and green hills by the roads were just amazing and I loved it. Passengers are advised to carry their own refreshment as in Shimla stuff is little costly. Moreover carry some basic medicine because change in whether may lead you to fall sick.
