Mini Bus on rent in Kolkata
From the Howrah Bridge to the Victoria Memorial, and from the Shobhabazar Rajbari to the Shaheed Minar, Kolkata is a city of many attractions. It is little wonder that the land of poetry, literature, theatre and advanced thought attracts many a visitor. It is also a leading centre of commerce and trade, and has developed many great institutions of learning over the years as well.
However, travelling in Kolkata when you are part of a group is an exercise in patience. The city’s roads are unable to keep up with the high traffic volumes, and public transport is quite unreliable. If you are part of a group of visitors that are in the city for sightseeing or business, then you will need a dedicated vehicle to take you around. The best thing to do is to choose a mini bus rental in Kolkata.
The pricing varies as per the seating capacity of the bus and whether the bus is an AC or non-AC one. At the moment, we offer these seating capacities for hired mini buses in Kolkata:
- 15 Seater Minibus
- 18 Seater Minibus
- 20 Seater Minibus
- 21 Seater Minibus
- 22 Seater Minibus

Safety+ with Bus Hire
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.
How a Mini Bus Rental Works
A rented vehicle is a better option than hiring a fleet of cars, or private cabs/autorickshaws to commute in Kolkata. In a city as crowded as this, you don’t want to be stuck in a cacophony of traffic and air pollution while you try to reach your destination. Instead, a mini bus hired/rented in Kolkata offers an easy, comfortable and safe commute. You can reach your destination in comfort and silence, and even catch up on your rest (if on a long journey outside the city).
Not only is it a cost-effective solution, but a practical one as far as groups are concerned. You can arrange for a mini bus for rent/hire in Kolkata depending on the group size. Generally, it is a great solution for groups of 15 to 20 people.
