Default need info on delhi-jammu trip

this post is against essence of t-bhp that all trips should be made in a car..but i need to make a trip using a bus from delhi to jammu.

I need to take a bus in morning from delhi. i have researched everywhere but couldnt find any info, almost all buses start from delhi in evening. if anyone has any info on morn buses, please share.

LLL, go to the strech that accomodates travel agents (bus operators) near lal qila. Buses run the whole day for Jammu. Alternatively, call up 22222222 and check for local (private) bus operators. Alternatively, call up ISBT to catch up a DTC/Volvo. Alternatively, stand at NH-1 bypass and catch a bus.

I am trying the first 2.

>3. Alternatively, call up ISBT to catch up a DTC/Volvo.
DTC has a volvo in evening only

> 4. Alternatively, stand at NH-1 bypass and catch a bus.
well...i will like to get reserved seats and not run around trying to catch buses at a busy road.

if anyone knows an operator, please let me know.

Why bus only?
You can get trains like JAMMU SUPERFAST , MALWA express etc.. around 5 in the morning & reach JAMMU around 3 pm
A bus journey will take about 2 hours more as the road between JALLANDHAR & PATHANKOT And further Approx.70 km. strech before JAMMU is under 4-laning.Bus journey will be more tiring.
Best option is to catch a night train & reach there in the morning & use your daytime.
One should make such trips in the day time while driving in cars.
BTW this is my personal thinking & moreover having made more than 100 trips from DELHI TO JAMMU/PATHANKOT on car,bus,train & even bike,i think i can help you out.

thanks breezydrive. bus is my first option as i can get off at asia hotel in jammu, which is my destination. almost all buses pass in front of that.
train is my second option...i will have to arrange some additional transport from station to asia hotel. i will go with trains you mentioned. i cant take a night bus/train as i will get free at around mid-night from my work and then i will have to travel to jammu. Hence the plan to travel in morning.
I would have loved to drive myself, but this time i will be travelling alone so dont want to drive 600+ kms all alone.

Buses to Jammu : Travelling by Volvo B7R bus in India: Volvo timings and fare from Delhi to other cities

The problem is volvo runs overnight only on this route..
