Volvo Bus Service – Kolkata to Durgapur
There are regular VOLVO bus services from Kolkata to Durgapur and CSTC runs non-ac buses every half an hour between these two places but if you are looking for a comfortable journey from Kolkata to Durgapur, I would suggest you to opt for VOLVO bus service run by several operators in Kolkata and Durgapur. VOLVO bus service from Kolkata to Durgapur will serve you happy and classy journey.
Volvo buses starts departing for Durgapur from morning and you find services till evening by some operators but the frequency reaches the highest level from 10am in the morning during rush hours. Most of the buses leave for Durgapur before noon. On weekends it is hard to get a ticket but in weekdays tickets are available but I suggest booking the tickets well in advance because nobody knows when the seats get occupied. There are so many operators and I am listing a few of them.

Mercedes Benz service between Kolkata and Durgapur operated by Jaidada Travels is paused for now because they are not doing a great deal here. Hope they start providing the service again.
The bus journey is really comfortable and good. In each bus you get 2 LCD screens, movies are played. Hope you have a good luck while being in bus and they don’t play bull shits like I experienced. I had to watch the super flop “Khiladi 786” staring Akshay Kumar on my journey from Kolkata to Durgapur and find no way to escape on return journey too because that time they played another super flop “Joker” staring Akshay Kumar. I can conclude that if I need to travel again to Durgapur, I would opt for VOLVO bus service from Kolkata.
The bus halts for one time at Shaktigarh market and you can try the big “Langcha” – the popular sweet item there. Shaktigarh is famous for this. We had some superb Langchas, Pantuas and Milk cakes. The bus didn’t late and dropped us within the scheduled time.
Keep traveling, keep smiling. 🙂
