Volvo Luxury Bus Liner Q Connect Starts Its Service From Islamabad To Lahore

volvo luxury bus pakistan

Long gone are the days when you had to travel on one of those old Bedford buses aka ‘rocket’ from one city to another. They were slow, noisy, and uncomfortable. Later, we started to see Toyota Coaster buses on roads as means of luxury transportation. They were far better than those Bedford buses in every aspect. And then when Islamabad-Lahore Motorway was built, the first company to provide quality transportation was Daewoo Bus Service. They were the pioneer in the field. Buses were new, well built, quiet and comfortable. And the staff was friendly and courteous. But then as expected a bunch of other transportation companies started to pop up. The roads, highways, and motorways throughout Pakistan have improved many folds. Travel has become relatively easier and faster. Now you have all sorts of travel companies that provide you services from every other city. There are a bunch of bus services in Pakistan that are operating between Islamabad to Lahore, Islamabad to Karachi, and even Swat to Karachi bus services. But now there is a new player in town.

    Brave step…

  • Bil

    This is a class apart but as much i am loving the buses i stil find the rents to be on the higher side. Shouldnt be more then 2500 rs.

  • Ehs

    Nice to see this service.
    A good alternative choice between Daewoo bus service and Air travel.

  • Faizan

    Very Good , .. Next Time i will surely use this BUS service.. They must also provide free shuttle service to main points in rawalpindi ,as Daewoo and Kainaat does

  • Sanjay Natarajan

    Rs.3300 is a bit high, but I think it is worth every penny!
    Wish I could visit Pakistan some time, such a beautiful place! 🙂

    Pictures are taken from Asad Sheikh’s post on social media (and I believe the story as well). You should never make a blog post out of someone else’s post without even mentioning. PW should consider writing better blogs.

  • Go to north side whenever you visit.
    You’ll love the people there (and in all Pakistan).

  • Lazy Sapper

    Too luxurious to be on the roads of Pakistan. Besides fortress stadium is far far away from Motorway. This bus will take an hour just to reach terminal after leaving Motorway.

  • Sanjay Natarajan

    Thanks for the invite bro…. But you know, I’m an Indian and you know what’s happening between our 2 countries. If both the countries could become friendly like our people, then I will visit for sure.
    BTW, started saving some money every month for the trip:-)

  • Shaikh Ibrahim

    Good they must provide the shuttle at both stations

  • Amir

    Hello can anyone tell me how to book a seat on it or there any contact number or website please?

  • An Engineer

    If 3 persons have to go to Lahore , it will cost 13200/-. Its better to take your own car or take a BMW on Rent. Either if u will take a car with Driver too on Rent , Toyota corolla CVT-i , even it will cost you around 5000… Savings of 8000 approximately…… This Bus service is just like making a HAMMER OF GOLD….

  • An Engineer

    4 persons Sorry….. 4*3300=13200/=

  • Dots

    O bhai……. Companies Pay for writing blogs…………..

    Brother sanjay.. you are always welcome.. I myself am from the UK and we all live together. Some of my indian friends have visited lahore with me a few time and they have had such a welcome reception you would think the royal family was in town.. they loved it. People should learn to love one another.. this is a political war, not a humanity war.. and those who have a hate for others are no better.

    Anyway back to the coach… its lovely. But seems such a long way to the motorway in lahore. I don’t know where it arrives in islamabad by locality because I have never been. Buy seems like I would love to try…

  • Mona Malik

    Let me know the address or telephone no for Islamabad bookings

  • Zulfiqar Ali Soomro

    so LHR-ISB costs 3300, wonder what it will cost between KHI-ISB once the motorway is complete. More than air flights? :s

  • Zulfiqar Ali Soomro

    like we Pakistanis have PW informing us about the auto industry, can you tell us about your website where we can stay updated about your industry?

  • The politicians separating us.
    Everyone is welcomed with warm heart in Pakistan.

    Your opinion will only be changed when you see the people yourself.

  • Sanjay Natarajan

    Hey bro…PW is doing a great work in delivering pak auto news. Similarly there are many auto news websites in India, including many popular world magazine’s Indian edition. Some are autocar India, overdrive, motorbeam, topgear India, indianautosblog, motoroids, autoX, zigwheels, team-bhp, etc.,
    Thanks for taking interest in Indian auto news too.. 🙂
    Have a great day bro…

  • Sanjay Natarajan

    Of course I will visit Pakistan in future my friend.. 🙂

  • Great!
    Would love to have you here.

  • Sultan Kiani

    The owner is playing clever. He knows that curious auto enthusiasts (like me) would travel by these buses just to feel the difference but only for once! And once the number of commuters decreases, I bet he will cut the fare may be up to 40% and it will stay below 2000 PKR.

    And as for Khi-Isb route, it would be less than the economy class airfare or it would be a big failure.

  • Zulfiqar Ali Soomro

    it has to, because Daewoo is winning the race and will win the race as far as long routine commutes are concerned
