Summers have arrived! And apart from the searing heat and humidity, it is also the season when most families across India plan for their annual family vacations. Like all other years, 2019 will also see a high demand for train tickets during the next couple of months. And that means getting confirmed seats in trains would not be easy. Fact is: Indian railways wants you to plan out your journeys well in advance. But life does not have such a linear flow to it. So…
- Millions of Indians would be spending many restless hours pondering over the fate of their not-yet confirmed train tickets.
- Thousands would cancel their vacations due to the unavailability of confirmed train tickets.
- Thousands of others would suffer the inconvenience of journeying with RAC tickets or worst still return back from stations when their waitlisted ticket/s are not confirmed.
But not many people would seek bookings in a long distance bus! But buses are also a perfect transport medium! We know, you must be wondering how we are pitching buses as a “perfect” mode for your joyous family travel. For decades now, Indian long distance buses have turned fun filled journeys into a nightmare. Lack of conveniences, timeliness and infrastructure in this sector has meant that the bus travelers have to suffer.

Let us take you to popular summer destination
Within a couple of weeks after launching our Delhi-Lucknow-Delhi smart bus services, our inboxes were filled with requests from loyal users. Each mail carried a request for route addition to our smart bus services. We knew we could not add all of them right away. But we identified some of the popular routes where the Indian families would be journeying during the summer break. And we have added many such routes. Some of our latest smart bus routes are:
- Delhi – Amritsar (via Ludhiana): Many families prefer Amritsar as their summer trip destination and there are many logical reasons for their choice. It is a city with rich historical heritage and offers a chance to view the splendid Golden Temple and other gorgeous religious sites. So, we decided to include this route.
- Delhi – Manali (via Chandigarh): Hill stations are the go-to destination when the heat elsewhere gets unbearable. Logically then hundreds of Indian families would be travelling to Manali and use this tourist town as a base for their exploration of the scenic hamlets of Himachal Pradesh. Our smart buses can take you to Manali city center.
- Delhi – Shimla (via Chandigarh): Decades have passed, generations have grown up, and yet Shimla remains as beautiful as ever. And when one talks about summer travel, Shimla would definitely be the best place to visit. Apart from its long list of tourist attractions, it is also conveniently connected with other tourist towns in the near vicinity. And guess what, you can take a RailYatri smart bus from New Delhi to reach Shimla without any hassles at all.
- Delhi – Jaipur: Holding the splendors from the Rajput era, Jaipur intrigues the travelers both young and matured. A trip to Jaipur would serve as a good exposure to Indian history for your kids and give you endless opportunities to spend some leisure days. The diversity of landscapes is amazing between Delhi and Jaipur. And you can enjoy it sitting within the air-conditioned coach of RailYatri smart bus.
- Delhi – Kanpur: Kanpur is a beautiful city situated on the banks of Ganga. The city brings before you a collage of religious and historical sites. The Ghats in Kanpur offer you a great scope to sit and reflect upon your life. And Kanpur is also among the leading summer travel destinations in Northern India. And we offer you a memorable bus journey to this diverse city in our smart bus.
