Hi, i would like to know a fare from Mumbai to Hyderabad return by Sleeper AC volvo. Can you please advise who and where to contact for reservations.

. said...

Hi Priya,
There are no sleeper volvos on this route. The sleeper ones are Indian non a/c buses (not recommended).
You however have a choice of semi-sleeper volvo bus.

Jabbar, HKB, Kesineni are the options.
Contact Kesineni at

alternatively, if u r in mumbai, these operators have their offices at Sion, Chembur, Vashi etc

Heard news that APSRTC volvo coach between Kolkaata and Vizag is discontinued ? Is this correct? Anyone else operates on Kolkatta-Vizag??

ss said...

Isnt Bangalore-Mumbai 1100 kms one of the longest routes as well.

KSRTC operates a B7R service from Kanjangud in Kerala from Mumbai .This is via Mangalore,Kasargod.So,I think if this service exists,then its one of the longest for sure

SS: Mumbai to Bangalore is 1000-1040 depending from where the bus leaves in Mumbai.
The Kerala-Mumbai KSRTC B7R is non operational

Ashwath said...

Hi, The longest routes in country is currently now operated by VRL Travels. They ply Multi Axle Volvos on the following routes:-

Bangalore - Ahmedabad (via Pune, Mumbai, Vadodara) which comes to 1500 km!


Chennai - Mumbai (via Bangalore, Pune) which comes to 1350 km!

There might not be any competition for these soon! And that more than 24 hour journey!

servantkris said...

All those are very old figures.

Now Kesineni operates Hyderabad to Trivendrum, and Hyderabad to Nagarcoil. They cover the distance not more than 19 hours. I guess this is the competition for vrl.

VRL is the record breaker with Bangalore <-> Ahmedabad about 1600kms. Takes 28Hrs of travel time. Two of them departs from both ends everyday.

Kiran said...

Followed by SRS introducing Bangalore <-> Jodhpur & Bangalore <-> Rajkot.

All records broken Guys. VRL now operate the second longest bus route in Asia.
Bangalore to Jodhpur covering 1950 Kms!!! A feather in the cap for VRL with good demand seen over the past one month.
2 set of drivers change at Mumbai. A total of 37 hrs journey!!!. The charges are as of now Rs 3000.
I don't think that this wont be broken anytime soon.
