"Rajahamsa AC Volvo provides on-board entertainment, blankets and water"

5.5/7
Posted 16 Nov

Travelled by: Bus

Travelled as: Solo

I travelled by KSRTC bus(Rajahamsa). It was quite comfortable. I am travelling between Pondicherry and Bangalore quite frequently, almost once or twice in a month. I travelled by all types of buses which runs by different organizations, government as well as private. I have used buses of Karnataka(KSRTC ), Tamil Nadu and Pondicherry governments, these including ordinary buses, delux, ultra delux, and AC buses. But I felt Rajahamsa is the best option, as these are quite comfortable and cheap also compared to AC(Volvo) buses. Ordinary bus are very cheap but not advisable for a long journey. On-board entertainment, blankets and water is provided in AC Volvo buses only. So if anybody ask, I will advice for Rajahamsa only.

Sorry, we could not find preference of Travellers for this route.
