"AC was not working properly and there were no curtains in the entire bus"

I took an Uttrakhand Roadways Volvo AC non sleeper bus. I couldn\'t book the ticket on line as their site was not working. I took a 10.30 am bus from ISBT Kashmiri Gate. The tickets can be brought there and then the bus started on scheduled time. The AC were not working properly and there were no curtains in the entire bus. The direct sun rays made the journey very uncomfortable for us and the television was also not working. There were no charging points in the bus. It stopped at one place during the seven hours long journey. The place it stopped had good food. It had very clean toilets. The bus reached Rishikesh at 5.30. For travelling to Rishikesh this should be the last option specially during the day.

"UPSRTC bus is a good way from Delhi to Rishikesh"

We started our journey from isbt bus stand kashmiri gate and we prebooked 4 tickets through online. The bus starts at 11 pm then they just give you one stop after travelling 100 km from Delhi toward Rishikesh for eating and going to washroom so you should be well-prepared that if there is some loo problem then you should not choose bus you should go by train. Bus started at 11 pm and we reached Rishikesh by 6am in the morning. Overall, experience of travelling in bus was good.

"A cool journey with friends"

Reaching Haridwar and then to Rishikesh was a nice experience. The roads were comparably good and traffic was not so disturbing. We took Army cantt way to reach to Haridwar. If you don't want to get into traffic mess, it's better to avoid Haridwar and go straight to Rishikesh. Drive slow and safe, as the people will be around to surprise you with their driving skills. No traffic management as such. Carry Water, chips and cold drinks with you. The roadside hackers are not reliable to buy. Fresh fruits though can be bought. Don't buy medicines en-route. We experienced fake medicine.

The route from Delhi to Rishikesh becomes crowded on weekends, a lot of people travel for rafting in summers. Best time to travel by road is early morning by 4-5 am. The road is well made though still undergoing construction in a few areas. Buses are also a good option if one does not like to drive by car.

I with my friend booked a bus from near by bus booking service in Delhi. It was a great experience and I loved to travel to Haridwar from Delhi. The fare was genuine and drive was of friendly nature and I think only driver with most experience of driving can drive in this road all though the road were unequal but driver drove it very well. The cleanliness in the bus was good and bus was punctual. The bus seat were good with safety features and the AC was working and I like the service provided by them.
