Indian buses added to Rome2rio

Published October 23, 2012

We continue to expand Rome2rio‘s database of train, bus and ferry routes. Today we’re happy to announce new coverage that is particularly useful for our users in India, or anyone travelling to the subcontinent.

Thanks to a partnership with RedBus, Rome2rio now offers extensive coverage of India’s bus network. This map illustrates our improved coverage in India:

Blue lines represent India’s train network, which were included on Rome2rio since launch. Green lines represent the new bus routes. As you can see, bus coverage is extensive and fills many gaps not covered by train lines.

Bus travel is generally not as comfortable as train travel in India, although deluxe services are often available and are good value. Buses are sometimes faster, often run more frequently and reach many towns and cities in the countries not on the rail network.

Give it a go with a search such as Mumbai to Bangalore and let us know what you think.

Rome2rio, based in Melbourne, Australia, is organising the world’s transport information. We offer a multi-modal, door-to-door travel search engine that returns itineraries for air, train, coach, ferry, mass transit and driving options to and from any location.
