Chandigarh is the capital of Punjab and Haryana. Shimla is 3 hours away from Chandigarh traveling by bus. Ninety percent of travel is in a hilly region traveling Chandigarh to Shimla. Volvo is the preferred mode of transport these days.
Main operators of Volvo buses in Himachal like Himachal Road Trasport Corporation (HRTC )and Himachal Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation (HPTDC) do not have any Volvo bus originate from Chandigarh bus stand. However, all the buses coming from the side of Delhi travels Shimla via Chandigarh sector 43 bus stand. So there is no direct buses avaiable at Chandigarh for Shimla.
The road from Chandigarh to Shimla is well developed. However, construction to make it in four-lane is going on but that is not an obstacle for traffic. Total distance is 125 km from sector 43 bus stand Chandigarh.
If you are a group maximum of 45 people you can hire a Volvo bus from Chandigarh. There are many operators provides charter services for Volvo bus. Following transporter own buses in Chandigarh tourist can hire buses if travelling in group.
