i choose to differ with jyoti

i went to mcleod on local bus from pathankot [80kms to gaggal + 23 kms to mcleod] and it was not comfortable

volvo is very comfortable in comparison

Can someone confirm if the AC VOLVO can still be booked from ISBT to mcleodganj ? I can't find it in the options in HRTC/ HPTDC online booking.

HRTC has a new website to book tickets http://www.hrtc.gov.in/hrtctickets/ ...I have used recently it to book volvo bus tickets from Dharamsala to Delhi and used my credit card to make payments, it works fine and you need to take a printout of the ticket.
p.s. you would of course need to register on the website before you can use it! cheers!

...i dont think this is what he's asking.

anyways, Vinay - there's something surprising. On return (dharamsala to ISBT, you can book a volvo but on the to journey del-dharamsala, only AC is available).

Call chanderlok building though in my experience compared to RSRTC bus ops from Bikaner house, Chanderlok HPTDC is exceptionally immature, almost childish (no space and no system) .... visit them if you can to be absolutely certain w.r.t. what you're getting. This is for HPTDC though, no idea about HRTC.

Dilliwala had a post regarding change of some buses to Anand Vihar. Pls check that post as well. It's in UK forum I think.

Thanks Cronos and Manzey, but vaibhav is correct. What I meant was, when I try to book a ticket for NDLS to McG from both, HRTC and HPTDC, I don't see a drop down of VOLVO AC as an option.

Vaibhav, your findings are in contrast to mine. I tried booking under (HPTDC) http://hp.gov.in/hptdc/Members/Booking.aspx
Though I see VOLVO AC in the drop down but on the next screen I don't see a route plying on the said dates, for that matter there's no bus running from Delhi to Dharamsala or return on any bus category. It just keeps saying, no such route available.

Now coming to HRTC
here the best I can find is a HIMGAURAV TATA AC bus which starts from ISBT at 8.16 PM, fare 726 Rs. And there's nothing for DELHI ISBT to mcLeodganj


Similarly, MCG to ISBT there is a Volvo option in dropdown but no BUS ROUTE available, so technically no booking possible.
and DHARAMSALA to ISBT VOLVO BUS exists and route exists too, starts at 8 PM from DHARAMSALA, fare 1000 rs.

phew!!


Of course I have logged into my registered account before searching for tickets.

I just checked the availability of the HRTC VOLVO to Dharamsala from Delhi on the HRTC website.

Everything seems to be normal there contrary to the info here that the Volvo is plying on alternate days!

Thats funny cuz that ways they should block those dates on the calender for booking.

Anyway, can anyone confirm that the buses are plying on the normal schedule everyday i.e. ISBT DELHI 8pm departure?

or is it still on the Alternate Day schedule!
Thanks

Hello Everyone,

I have just booked the tickets for Volvo to Dharamshala from Delhi for 13th of May.. But I had heard from someone in Indiamike that the buses are plying every alternate days, and there is some problem going on.
Anyone has some latest information about the Volvo buses running regularly and the issue whatsoever was there has been solved?

Any help in this regard would be highly appreciated..

Regards,
Anuj
