Bus No 240 - Bagbazar to Jodhpur Park - Best Bus of Kolkata

Bus No 240 that ply from Baghbazar in North Kolkata to Jodhpur Park in South Kolkata is the best bus I have ever seen in my life. As you read through the post, you will come to know about why I am awarding this bus the "Best Bus of the Century Award".

This bus starts from Jodhpur Park which is a very colourful locality among the South Kolkata Localities. It travels through the most colourful areas of Kolkata, like Jodhpur Park (Jadavpur University), Selimpur (Jodhpur Park Girls' High School), Dhakuria (Murlidhar College), Golpark (South City College), Gariahat (Basanti Devi College, CMC Gariahat), Ballygunge (South Point School, Ballygunge Siksha Sadan, South Calcutta Law College, Calcutta Girls Academy, Hazra Law College, Ballygunge Science College, Modern High School), Park Circus (Our Lady Queen of the Missions School, Lady Brabourne College), CIT Road (National Medical College, Holy Child School for Girls, Loreto Day School Entally), northern part of AJC Bose Road (Rafi Ahmed Dental College, Loreto Day School Sealdah, Nilratan Sarkar Medical COllege), APC Road (George Telegraph College, Sealdah, CMC Sealdah, Victoria College), MG Road (Surendranth College for Women, Chittaranjan College, Seth Soorajmall Jalan Girls College), College Street (Presidency College, University of Calcutta, IISWBM), Bidhan Sarani (Vidyasagar College for Women, Rabindra Bharati University, Bethune College, Scottish Church College), Hatibagan (Khudiram College), Shyambazar (Raja Manindra College), Sovabajar (Seth Anandaram Jaipuria college), Baghbazar. In each of this locality some or other Womens' College is located. So you can imagine the amount of colour the bus is treated with, during peak hours. The last stoppage is Baghbazar, which is an example of a posh/affluent Bengali Locality which has seen Kolkata emerge from a village to a city for over 400 years.

Sometimes during peak hours, one is sure to find the bus filled with more female population than male and that too between 18 to 30 as the bus passes Gariahat Junction and proceeds towards north. All of them well dressed, having a pleasing personality, they hail from good families. If you are a smart guy, you can ever choose your soul mate for life in this bus.

This bus has gained more importance as the South City Mall has come up. It is one of the few buses which lead us to South City Mall as the bus stand at Jodhpur Park is a few minutes walk from the mall.

My friend Gaurav has helped me a lot in gathering these data from the Internet. Kudos to him too.
