Tips for searching

  1. Some places have more than one name, for e.g., Kempegowda Bus Station is commonly known as Majestic - try searching for all the names.
  2. If you do not find a bus route for a place, try searching for nearby places. Many times there are good bus services to some areas but not to nearby ones. For instance, Agara (Sarjapur Road) is a major junction for buses; however HSR Layout which is adjacent does not have a very good bus service.
  3. Use the hints in brackets to distinguish between two different places having the same name, for e.g., Agara (Kanakapura Road) and Agara (Sarjapur Road).
  4. The last column that you see in the search results does not necessarily enumerate the bus stops. Rather it traces the detailed route taken by a bus number. The actual bus stop names may vary slightly.
  5. The special services such as Pushpak and Volvo are distinguished by the following prefixes in the bus route number: 'AS' for Atal Sarige, 'B' and 'C' for Big Circle, 'CH' for Chakra, 'G' for Big 10, 'J' for Janapriya Vahini, 'K' for Chikka Circle, 'P' for Pushpak, 'V' for Volvo, 'MBS' for Metro Bus Service, MF for Metro Feeder and 'TR' for Trunk Route. These may not be very up to date.
  6. The bus timings and frequency vary much faster than the route numbers. Further buses do not always adhere to the stipulated timings. Hence it is not possible to provide accurate and up to date information on the bus timings.
  7. The route plan determined by the Shortest Distance method may not be directly useful since it tends to generate too many hops. It is included in the search options for the sake of completeness only.

Add search option 'from "via" to'. Like From "KRMarket" via "Rajarajeswari Dental college" to Gulagunjanahalli". Will help most for most of the people. Rgds CA

@Basavaraj: As the search suggests, there is no direct route available from Doddakallasandra to ITPL. Please look up the route plan via intermediate bus stations in the "How" drop-down box. @CA: Thanks for the suggestion. You can achieve the same functionality by doing two searches using the Direct Routes Only metric. For your example, first do a search from K R Market to Rajarajeshwari Dental College and then do a search from Dental College to Gulagunjanahalli.

It is a good site to search buses and bus route. It will be good, if you can put approximate schedule time/frequency.

Thanks, Rahim, Channa, Lohith, MD. Hari, Please search the bus routes for your locations in the search box provided above using any of the methods listed in the "How" dropdown box. I found several two-hop routes for your source and destination points.

A suggestion. Make "Minimum Number of Hops" as default selection in "How" combo box. For someone searching for a route which doesn't have a direct route shouldn't be said "no routes available" on default search. Anyway "Direct Routes" is clearly a subset of "Minimum hops" search and all the direct routes are in the top of your result because that's the min hop! I think this will improve user experience especially people like Basavaraj and Hari who may not have observed "How" filter in the first place.

@Channa: Good suggestion. Actually another friend had given the same feedback to me last week. I've done the change now.

@Vineet: Many people have asked the same information about bus timings. As I have mentioned in point (6) under Tips for searching, the timing information is not very accurate. More importantly, I don't have a good source of timing information that can be maintained going forward. Which is better: (a) Put up timing information that may be out-dated, inaccurate and incomplete, or (b) Not put up incorrect information that can be misleading to people I'd like to hear more opinions about this point. If there are people who can volunteer to actively correct and add to the timing information, I'm more than willing to introduce the feature.

this is good. But it will be best if there is any provision for the distance b/w the two destinations and also the ticket charge

I came across your site after you left a comment on my blog. First off thanks a lot for visiting my blog. Secondly, I would like to know the timing details also for a route number. Currently I was not able to find that out.

hi, excellent job .... very good initiative.. i searched google for alternatives and found following sites having features which are not here, but your search criteria is better - , May be good idea to add these links here,

@Mahantesh: Sorry, I don't have the distance data. Regarding the ticket charge, a rough rule of thumb is Rs.2 per km for ordinary services, and Rs.4 per km for Volvo services after a certain minimum distance which I'm not able to remember (as of now, at least). @Ashithraj: Thanks for the comment. Please see my earlier comment (two above yours) about the timings @Govindraj: Thanks for the comments.
