Its awesome when you reach the beautiful city in 4 hours with only few bucks. The Station at Chandigarh is under renovation, which might cause you some problem. If you are traveling by kids, please take the baby food and water with you, because you can not trust the local vendors in train if they are selling original or not. When you reach Amritsar there are many Autowalas outsides the Station which have a fix price.

Journey was safe and sweet. Punctuality in arrival and departure of the bus and staff behaviour was good. One halt point at Jallandhar Bus Stand/ haveli Jallandhar. It took 4-4:30 hours journey from Chandigarh to Amrtisar. Even roads are excellent with moderate traffic during the peak hours in the route.

This new train between Amritsar and Chandigarh is a boon. It is a super fast express and with AC coaches as well. It takes approx 5 hours and is always on time. Food is served within. It is the best source for low cost travel. Plus there is not much booking. So you can book tickets 10 -20 days in advance.

Whole journey takes 5-6 hours via. Volvo or other luxury buses. There is scenic beauty all around the roads due to fields of Punjab. Journey was luxurious and seats were comfortable. People travelling with me were friendly. Long 6 hours felt like nothing due to friendly environment and movie played for entertainment in bus.

Beautiful journey it is, with lots of eating joints in midway. But lots of toll booths on the way. You can make a stop near Jalandhar at Haveli on main gate road or even at Mc Donalds too. Its a rushy road but roads are wide enough. Make sure you carry good music along, you will love the journey.
