    Hello, @Rahini, welcome to the forum!



    Both the cities of Indore and Bhopal are located in the state of Madhya Pradesh. They are quite apart though, with a distance of about 196 kilometres between them. If you choose to drive this distance, it can take around 3 hours and 30 minutes to reach Bhopal from Indore. Of course, if you choose public transportation, journey duration might be a bit more. Depending on the delays you encounter along the way, on average, you can reach Bhopal from Indore in about 4 hours via public transportation. In this guide, we're going to be focusing on the chartered buses operated by Chartered Speed, a private bus company operating in different cities in India, like Ahmedabad, Bhopal and Indore.

    Chartered Buses from Indore to Bhopal (Chartered Speed)

    The company operates 54 Volvo buses running between Indore and Bhopal. All their buses are multi-axle, air-conditioned ones with two seats on each side per row and five seats on the last row. These buses have two pick-up points from which you can board any of them. The main pick-up point is at the City Bus Depot, close to the AICTSL Campus. Ten minutes after, they also pick-up passengers from the Radisson Hotel Square. They drop off passengers at different points in Bhopal too. The first drop off point is opposite the Mahindra Showroom, near Lal Ghati. The second drop off point is at the New Market in Roshanpura. And the last drop off point is at the Inter State Bus Terminal, close to the Habibganj Railway Station.

    These are all the Volvo chartered buses plying between Indore and Bhopal. The earliest bus departs at 00:30 from the City Bus Depot, close to the AICTSL Campus. At about 00:40, the bus would pick-up passengers from its second point, at the Radisson Hotel Square. By about 3:40, the bus would drop off passengers opposite the Mahindra Showroom. By 3:50, the bus would drop off passengers at the second point which is the New Market at Roshanpura. And by 4:00, the bus would drop off passengers at the Inter State Bus Terminal, near the Habibganj Railway Station.

    The same goes for all the buses, only the timings differ. As you can see, there are buses every 30 minutes or so. You can easily find a bus that you can fit into your busy schedule. The last bus departs from Indore at around 23:30 and arrives in Bhopal at around 3:00. Journey duration varies depending on the time of the day but at the most, you'd be travelling for around 4 hours.

    For booking any of these buses, you can go to the official website of Chartered Speed. If you book through their site, you have to pay an online reservation fee of Rs. 43 per passenger that you reserve. Official fare is at Rs. 330 per passenger plus the booking charge. You can select your seat specifically as well through their website. Print the e-ticket once you have paid and you're done.

    You can also book any of these buses from affiliated websites of the company. RedBus is one such site, just input your boarding point and your destination plus the date of your journey, then you can book a chartered bus from them. For booking via this website, the incurred fare per passenger is at Rs. 352. From the website, you can also choose which seats you would like. Females have special designated seats for them as well.

    Another affiliated website is Yatra. You also need to input the same details as above and you can easily book a bus from them. Just like the former bus booking site, you can choose a seat easily too. Fare is the same, which is at Rs. 352 per passenger.


    I hope this guide helps you in your journey via bus from Indore to Bhopal. You have many bus options, as you can see from the guide above, so you won't need to worry. You can also book a bus from the different websites mentioned above for a convenient and hassle-free journey. Fares are generally the same for all bus booking sites, but you do have to pay more when you book from the official website of Chartered Speed. Take care!
