Bus travel has been growing at 25% every year and has become a preferred mode of transport. This is because, for several routes like “Bangalore-Chennai” and “Ahmedabad-Mumbai” bus travel takes the same time as air travel does. On top of that, luxury buses such as “Volvo” and “Mercedes” provide unmatched executive class comfort to bus travelers.
