Chandigarh - Shimla Volvo Bus: From which Sector: 43 or 17?

From which sector in Chandigarh does the Rajasthan State Transport Corporation (RSTC) Volvo bus (10.00 am) depart for Shimla? Is it Sector 43 or Sector 17?

I can't find this info anywhere, although according to RSTC information, the departing point is Chandigarh Bus Stop. But there are dozens of bus stops in Chandigarh; so which one is it? Is it the new ISBT in Sector 43 or is it the Sector 17? Why can't they give the proper address by mentioning the Sector? Is that so difficult? That would certainly help foreign visitors.

I need this info to help me choose a hotel not too far from that Bus Stop.

Your help would be much appreciated.

i have done some research.

There is a Volvo bus service run by Rajasthan State Transport Corporation, leaving Chandigarh from ISBT Sector 43, daily at 10.00 am, reaching ISBT Shima (located about 5 Km from The Mall Lift) around 2.00 pm.

From ISBT Shimla, there are regular buses to Shimla main tourist area (around Mall Rd vicinity) every 5-10 mins and the journey takes around 10 mins. Cost a few rupees.

HRTC deluxe buses Shimla to Manali leave from this station itself (ISBT Shimla - Tuttukandi Rd)

Just saw your post. There are 2 bus services in Himachal..one is Himachal Roadways, which is the largest. The other is run by Himachal Tourism. Both are State Government owned.

There is a daily deluxe bus to Manali from Shimla by Tourism..it leaves from Victory Tunnel (I think)..you can check from their website for other details. In my considerable travels in Himachal I found Tourism staff to be more professional.

I've been checking out the Himachal Roadways bus services and most start post 7pm in the evening.

Are there ordinary buses that leave every half hour / one hour that can take me to Shimla? Also which sector in Chandigarh can these be taken from.

Namaste!

There are regular ordinary buses, which ply for Shimla every 15-20 minutes (more frequent during early morning & early evening). You will get them at ISBT, Sector 43 only.
