A Review of HRTC’s Himsutra AC Bus Plying from Chandigarh to Mandi
I traveled from Chandigarh to Mandi by Himsutra AC bus run by Himachal Pradesh Road Transport Corporation (HRTC) on March 23, 2017. This Manali bound bus started at its scheduled time 08:30 am from ISBT 43, Chandigarh. It took exactly six hours to reach Mandi and dropped me at Mandi at the scheduled arrival time. The fare of this video bus was INR 517 per passenger. The bus stopped twice for breakfast and lunch.
