Chandigarh to Delhi train tickets were not available during last week of November 2012. I opt for bus service. We reached ISBT-17 (Interstates) and booked Haryana Roadways Volvo Bus tickets for Delhi. The fare was Rs. 510 per person. Total journey hours approx. 5. During the journey we were shown two movies. One was OH MY GOD and another one was a Punjabi movie. Comfortable journey indeed.
And recently 2013 I was at ISBT-17 (Interstates) for Chandigarh Dehradun bus service but was suggested by a bus conductor to visit ISBT-43 (Interstates).
ISBT – 17 to ISBT – 43 via AC Minibus Rs. 10 bus fare I paid.
Chandigarh to Paonta Sahib bus was parked at ISBT-43 (Interstates) and was leaving soon. I decided to have a seat. Chandigarh to Paonta Sahib bus fare – Rs. 150 and journey hours 3 hours 30 minutes. At 3:40pm from Paonta Sahib I was inside another bus reached Dehradun at 5:20 pm. Total journey hours from Chandigarh to Dehradun was approx. 5 hours 30 minutes. And comfortable as well.
ISBT-43 is also good for early morning bus for Chandigarh railway station. Bus fare Rs. 25/-. At 5:50 am I was inside the bus and by 6:20 am I reached station to catch Kalka Shatabdi for New Delhi.
