MSRTC Volvo service from Pune to Bangalore


Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation (MSRTC) has introduced its ‘Shivneri’ Volvo AC bus service between Pune and Bengaluru from Thursday.

The bus will depart from MSRTC’s Swargate depot at 5.30 pm daily and will reach Bengaluru next day at 8.45 am.


Worst part you cannot book tickets on-line and the website mentions that one can alight at Belgaum but cannot board. This must be specific to on line booking only. Also I was unable to get the timings the bus would come arrive at Belgaum. One more fault I could not book a return ticket from Bangalore to Pune or Belgaum. Anyways people wishing can book it online here .

The same bus will leave Bengaluru for Pune at 6.15 pm and reach here next morning at around 9.30 am.

The one-way journey from Pune to Bengaluru, which would cover Kolhapur-Kagal-Belgaum-Dharwad-Hubli-Haveri-Harihar-Davangiri-Chitradurg-Tumkur stations, would cost Rs 900 per passenger.

Blankets, mineral water and newspaper will be provided free of cost to the passengers to make their journey more comfortable.



  1. i want to go to belgaum on 9/8/12 at night, so can u tell me which bus will be suitable for me to reach belgaum on next day morning

  2. We are going to pune from hubli so please will u tell us the timimng and cost of the bus please mail regarding this to my mailid.

    Thanking You

  3. reply to aisiri : though your point is well taken and nobody use misspell the city names.. unfortunately what u hv used as eg is true fact.. KSRTC online booking site knows PUNE as POONA only. if u enquire on PUNE , you will not get anything.. try Po… u will get poona and the related buses also..

  4. What kind of disease does mah have? its not dawangiri, but davangere, and chitradurg is written as chitradurga. why do they play around with names of places in karnataka (incl belagavi) when they are so obsessed with their own names? looks like it is being done deliberately as i cant understand how somebody can mispell davangere to dawangiri!!

    Should we stoop to the same extent of mispelling the places in mah like bombay, poona etc?

    • Karnataka does call it POONA…..check KSRTC wesite…then blame…

      More over thats the way we call belgaun (the true name )which should have been a part of Maharashtra.

      • Mr…………… Come out from Dreams! Still you people are in same way. That will never happen…… Never.

  5. Let MSRTC start a shiverni service of Pune Belgaum Pune it sounds better ,the hop service when KSTRTC is not fecilitating to come inside Belgaum it is least to expect from MSRTC

  6. Hi, I guess we are allowed to board at Belgaum, Once the Bus reaches CBT we get current tickets through Current Booking. I guess in the days to come we mite see the tickets being sold at travel agents.
