Kolkata: ‘Rajdhani’ or ‘capital city’ is the name given to the service as it would connect each district headquarters with Kolkata. The latest feather in the cap is the ‘Rajdhani’ Volvo bus service.
The service would be introduced by the Transport Department soon. The Department is going to completely change the road transport scenario of the state, and people will be less dependent on train services to reach Kolkata, even from the districts of north Bengal.
Already, there are several buses connecting districts with Kolkata, but the Volvo bus service is going to be one-of-its-kind. Bus connectivity across Bengal has improved by leaps and bounds over the last few years with the introduction of new routes, new buses, and new-concept bus terminuses, among other facilities.
