Bus for Rental in Kolkata

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.

The Coronavirus pandemic has thrown several industries into turmoil with multiple lockdowns happening and being enforced through many parts of India. With lockdown orders and inter and intrastate movement getting relaxed, people are looking at hiring buses for several reasons. From returning to their loved ones back home or getting back to their workplaces, people are slowly moving towards a sense of normality when it comes to travel. And with such booking requests coming in, redBus would like to shed some light on some of the safety measures that bus service providers follow before and after every booking:

Mandatory use of Masks: Passengers and staff are not permitted to enter the bus without using a protective mask. The bus staff and passengers are encouraged to keep their masks at all times during their journey.

Deep cleaning: Buses are subjected to a series of deep cleaning procedures to ensure that every vehicle (Tempo, bus, etc.) is disinfected after every trip.

Temperature Checks: Along with the passengers, every staff member on board undergoes regular temperature checks. The bus staff is checked periodically before every trip as well.

Blankets and Linens: Passengers are advised to carry their blankets and linens as the bus service provider would not provide the same to minimize the spread of COVID-19.

Hand Sanitizers: Every vehicle that's available for hire through redBus comes equipped with hand sanitisers.

Advisories: Along with several notifications that redBus provides its passengers to ensure that they are kept safe, passengers are also requested to stay at home if they exhibit any symptom associated with coronavirus.

The pandemic is something new that we might not have experienced before. And it doesn't look like that pandemic is going to go away anytime soon. You can ensure that you stay safe while also keeping your neighbours' safety in mind. You can even click here to find out about the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) status, precautions to follow, important state helpline numbers, and make sure you read about Safety+ and more with redBus.

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.

Though you will find several bus hires companies that offer buses of various seating capacities, you must go only with leading companies like redBus. At redBus, we are committed to offering every customer the most comfortable and safe ride, at a cost they like. Our buses are also in prime condition and manned by experienced drivers.
redBus’s biggest USP is that the process from booking to payment is entirely operational online. You can book the ride in just a few steps online. Just give us a few details about the proposed journey and we work out the rest.

Things to know about Bus Rentals Kolkata

Kolkata can be called the busiest metro city of the country. It keeps hustling and bustling throughout the day. Also, the city is pretty crowded, and the population density of the city is also relatively high. The roads are often congested due to the number of vehicles present on the road. This traffic congestion is increasing every day with an increase in the number of vehicles. Therefore, a Kolkata bus rental becomes a good option in case you are travelling with a small group. Bus rentals are affordable and can be quickly booked using the redBus app. People have a lot of transit options available in Kolkata, including metro trains, trams, rickshaws, taxis, etc. However, all of these modes of transportation have become crowded, and people don't even get a chance to sit in these buses properly. Therefore, booking a bus would give you the necessary satisfaction and your own space.

Some essential tips to keep in mind while you are travelling in Kolkata on a rented bus:

  • Make sure that you carry all your linens and blankets along in case you need them as these will not be given during the journey.
  • Also, carry your water bottles along as the city is humid.
