Bangalore Volvo bus routes

Air-conditioned Volvo buses as a mode of public transport was introduced by the Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) as a first in the country, on 17th of January 2006.

Out of all the public transport options in Bangalore, it is strongly recommended to try this volvo service, to go to airport or to city centres, majestic, ourter ring roads etc as it is much easier and most importantly makes you relaxed in traffic and gives you a good view of bangalore! For your last mile connectivity, you have Autos, City taxis and BIG10/pushpak buses.BMTC Volvo Vajra Bus Routes

A single day pass for BMTC, including volvos cost around Rs.75.You can travel in any BMTC buses in Bangalore. For the regular commuter, there are attractive offers on monthly passes as well. Check out BMTC site for latest updates. Bus Passes

Like Volvos, Pushpaks and BIG10 are also recommended for executive travel options, with a very descent crowd as the charge is higher than normal blue BMTC buses.
