The Atal Indore City Transport Services Limited (AICTSL) joined hands with the tourism department and started air-conditioned sleeper bus service between Indore and Rewa and Indore and Jabalpur from Saturday.
AICTSL officials said the buses will ply from the AICTSL headquarters on AB Road.
The bus, heading towards Rawa, will start at 5 pm and reach Rawa at around 9 am.
From Rawa, the bus will start at 5 pm and reach Indore at around 9 am. The fare will be `1,470.
The bus, heading towards Jabalpur, will start at 8 pm and reach Jabalpur at around 7 am.
The timing for the return journey will be the same. The fare will be Rs 1,030.
There has been a long-pending demand for reliable bus services from Indore to Jabalpur, especially from the legal fraternity as many of them travel to Jabalpur which is the seat of the Madhya Pradesh high court.
At present, there is a direct train to Jabalpur and bus service by private operators.
Meanwhile, there are also plans to replace the big city buses with small buses in some of the routes.
A total of 65 such smaller buses will be introduced in 15 routes where the roads are narrow.
The small buses will mostly ply in the inner city areas.
