Kolkata is the land of the intellectually stimulating, the free-spirited and the socially conscious. It has spawned many a literary and artistic revolution, and is the fount of all that is educational – no wonder Kolkata is known as the Oxford of the East. But in the last two decades, the city’s population has grown exponentially and put tremendous strain on the public infrastructure. Vehicular traffic jostles for space with pedestrian space, and the roads are mostly choc-a-block at all times of the day.
In this scenario, reaching anywhere on time becomes a big challenge. Especially when there are multiple cars competing for the same stretch of road. However, this problem is slightly solved by reducing the numbers of individual cars, and replacing them with single units like tempo travellers or buses. When looking to transport a group of people, it is always better to choose buses for rent in Kolkata.

If You Want A Bus For Hire In Kolkata, Trust redBus

Kolkata is not just a popular tourist destination but also a highly populated city. As per traffic estimates for all the Indian metros, Kolkata shows the highest traffic congestion of all. The peak xxmorning and evening hours see high traffic density in areas like Nagabazar, Dum Dum metro station point, Thakurpukur, Taratala, Jodhpur Park, etc.
At a time when better traffic synchronisation is absent and private cars are not discouraged from plying whenever they can, it makes better sense to take a bus. However, you can’t depend on public transport buses to do the job. Whether you are part of a group of employees that need to be dropped home, or to go to a conference, or whether you are part of a group of tourists in the city, hiring/renting a bus in Kolkata is the best option. Transporting a group of people in one large vehicle is better than having a series of smaller vehicles for the same group.
