Hello Friends,

Can anyone suggest some good Volvo buses that ply between Delhi and Haridwar with the lowest possible time. Also, let me know the other bus options available. I can't avail the train as by the time I reach Delhi the trains are 3-4 hours interval, so will take the bus to save time. Also, I know about Kashmiri gate bus stand, does all the buses ply from there ?

How far is the bus stand from the New Delhi station ?

Many thanks.

Regards,
Avik.

Just one thing...ISBT, Kashmiri gate is under renovation. All Uttarakhand bound buses are now plying from Anand Vihar ISBT.

In addition to Delhiwala advice I would like to add that Volvo bus takes approx 5+ hours from Anand Vihar Bus Stand to Haridwar which includes 30-40 minutes break around Meerut byepass.
Fare is Rs. 385 per passenger from Delhi to Haridwar.

My personal advice prefer Uttarakhand Volvo Buses as they are new launched in July 2011. Take Government undertaking bus from inside the bus stand only and try to avoid private bus as they will move when there are enough passengers for them.

Although there are a/c buses to Haridwar, I'm not sure if there are also Volvos. More info here:

Delhi: Buses to Haridwar?


Edit:
Vikas - can you confirm that it's definitely the blue buses (operated by Royal Cruiser - same as on Dehradun route) that you're referring to? I had heard from a UTC staffer that Volvos had been started on Delhi-Haridwar route a few months back, but were then withdrawn.

Hi Dilliwala,

These blue colour buses are Uttarakhand Roadways buses. I have travelled on 24th Aug 2011 from Delhi to Haridwar at 11:00 am (it acually left at 12pm) and reached Haridwar bus stand in 5hour 17min.

Infact two days back there was a news in local newspaper at Haridwar that Uttarkahand Roadways will be launching few more volvo buses soon. First bus leaving around 5am from Haridwar and reaching Delhi around 10:00 am and then last bus leaving Delhi around 10:00 pm. As per my inputs currently buses leaves Haridwar at 10:00 am and another bus which has left Haridwar at 10:00 pm returns from Delhi next day at 11:00 am.

Thanks for the update. Obviously the Haridwar Volvo services have been reintroduced.
True that the blue buses run on behalf of UTC, they are however operated by Royal Cruiser. Their website link is usually on the back of the buses. In fact I had checked directly with them last year re Dehradun services.

There was one real good AC bus at very reasonable rate (less than 300 bucks) by the stae government running when we came back from Haridwar last september. And to everyones surprise, there were only 7 of us in the whole bus as the driver told that usually nobody has the idea that even this bus runs between Delhi and Haridwar. And since this is a government bus, the requirement for running this bus is just around atleast 5 passengers if I remember correctly. And many a times, it gets cancelled bacause there are not even those number of passengers boarding the bus. It would be great if somebody would like to share some more info on this.

What is the latest update?

Am travelling from Delhi to Rishikesh on 8th May night or 9th May morning. If available, by A/c Bus ( Volvo or whatever, as long as A/c is running reasonably ).

What are the latest updates on this? Online booking on UKSRTC started? What buses from Anand Vihar or from ISBT Kashmere Gate?? What are the approximate A/c Bus fares?

Which is the last A/c bus out of Anand Vihar BT to Rishikesh ( or Haridwar )
