Hello Readers,
How are you ?

This post will tell you about various passenger communication services (Bus, Train) from Dhaka to Comilla and Comilla to Dhaka. The official distance from Dhaka GPO to Comilla GPO is 97 Kilometers. Bus services starts from various parts in comilla town, such as, Shashon Gasa, Jangalia Bus Stand, Paduar Bazar, Comilla Cantonment etc. And from Dhaka, buses are specially starts from Sayadabad, Kamalapur etc. The standard journey time is around two hours between the two cities.

During the year 1996 / 1997 when I was a student of Comilla Victoria College, there was various bus services from Dhaka-Comilla. Some of these was Asha, Peoples, Prime, Daewoo, Tisha and K-Ali etc. K-Ali was an old and famous bus service from Dhaka-Comilla or Comilla-Dhaka, the meaning of K Ali is Karam Ali (one of my school teacher told me about that !).

There are total 16 Upazila in Comilla district. Almost from every upazila's has direct Bus service to the capital of Bangladesh. Later in my other posts I will give a little description about all the upazila's / thana's communication services. So, communication services from Comilla City to Dhaka city is the main topic of this post.

As on February 2013, The standard fare for AC service is between 200 to 220 BD Taka and for Non AC services is between 120 to 170 taka.

সব ঠিক আছে কর্ভোডা মানুষ কে ভাড়া কম বলে গাড়িতে তুলেন, পরে ঢাকা এসে জোর করে বেশি ভাড়া নেন, বাকি গুলো সবাই ঠিক আছেন বিগত ৫ বসর ধরে আর ভ্রমন করিনা, এই চিটিং পরিবহনে!!
