Of many modes of transport, Buses have their own importance – whether it is availability, reach, fare, network to compare some. It is the most common mode of travel in India. In India these are largely owned by private bus operators. Many state government agencies also have their own bus agency to support tourism in their respective state.
For any travel or outing plan Buses are considered to be the best mode of travel. This is due to availability of large networks of roads and all the sites through which these roads pass.
