Pune to Mumbai by Bus

On our return from Pune, Abhishek and I took the MSRTC Shivneri bus service. We were in a ‘Made in China’ King Kong bus. We left at 3 pm, and reached Dadar at 6:45 pm.

It was actually my first-ever bus ride back from Pune. It turned out to be a very pleasant experience. For Abhishek, the memory of the ride back was seeing a train in the ghats. With the big windows, there was so much to see all around.

I used to take the bus (Greyhound mostly) in the US but somehow in India, the bus ride was always seen as an option of last resort. That has changed over the years as the buses have become more comfortable and punctual.

One thought on “Pune to Mumbai by Bus

  1. Inter-City Buses are the future. Take this scenario. If you take a flight from Bangalore to Chennai, you need to get out of your place 3 hours before the flight (considering the traffic, and the fact that Bangalore Intl Airport is actually in Hyderabad, well, almost). After you land in Chennai, it will take you another 2 hours to get to your place.

    Any sane person will just get into a bus.
