Devotees going to visit Mata Vaishno Devi will be at ease, super deluxe Volvo bus service starts from Dehradun:
The operation of super deluxe Volvo bus service has started from Monday evening for the devotees going to and around Doon for the darshan of Mata Vaishno Devi. Due to the second wave of Corona, the operation of this bus was stopped in March. In this situation, at present, the only direct transport service from Uttarakhand to Katra was the Hemkunth Express operated from Rishikesh.

Now with the start of direct bus service, the devotees of Premnagar, Selakui, Vikasnagar etc. including Doon will get relief. The bus fare for Katra is Rs 1712 and for Jammu Rs 1549.
