After India became independent from the rules of the British in 1947, several things have developed tremendously. Indian government, in 1950’s took up many steps for the improvement of the countrymen.

The distances which the Indians used to cover by walking in the ancient times, can now covered up through the medium of bus. Even though the concept of bus is the imitation of western concept, there can be no denial of the fact that our countrymen also worked hard to make an improvement in the construction of bus.

Indian government makes sure to improve the conditions of the several national highways which connect many cities across the country. India is considered to have the second largest road network in the world after USA.

Another very important aspect which has come to the forefront along with the introduction of the buses, and that is employment. We can see that a bus can provide livelihood at least two to three persons.

That is the driver and the conductor. Beside the driver and the conductor, a bus also involved several others to earn their daily wages. The parts of the buses are manufactured in several companies, which form Industries across the country, of which we are not very much conscious, or rather, we are less bothered.It is not only the trucks and private cars, but also the buses that play a large part to make sure there are several petrol pumps in the roads, which also is a source of earning money for many youngsters.

With the support of the corporations like several public agencies and State Road Transport Corporation, which also governed the whole transport system in particular state, across the country, actually works as a communication medium between people of both cities and villages.

Nowadays, people can visit several places in India through the medium called bus. The bus journey includes both the short trips, as well as the long journeys.

The word ‘bus’ is an example of how the Latin influence has created its impact in the English language. ‘Omnibus’, as the Latin origin sounds, was inscribed as ‘Bus’ in the English dictionary.

In an attempt to establish the glory and growth of Industrialisation in the British Empire, the first bus was manufactured in London in 1833. At first, it was the steam engine buses which were founded in the capital of Great Britain in 1830, prior to the Victorian era in England.

Through the years, the model of the bus has developed according to the demands of the local people and the contemporary circumstances, and the buses that we see today, are just the results of the improvement in the field of science and technology.

A bus is used to fulfill several purposes of the society, which includes the public transport, educational tours in some of the historical places, transportation of materials from one place to another, tourism and so on.

When we try our hand into the pages of Indian history regarding the buses, then we can see that the first motor bus was started way back into the 1926, and the distance it covered was from the Afghan Church to the Crawford Market, in Mumbai (Bombay by that time). The journey cost was four annas, that is 25 paise for an individual.

Purnia being one of the most notable districts of Bihar and also as the administrative headquarters of the state, provides the best bust services.

Purnia Bus Station is located in the state of Bihar. There are many buses which begin their journey from the Purnia Bus Stand and goes to certain destinations.

The buses run on a regular basis to the cities like Patna, Bhagalpur, Ranchi, Jamshedpur, Muzaffarpur, Hajipur, Mashrakh, Katihar, Siliguri etc. Kolkata to Siliguri, which is almost 465km by road, is covered by the private luxurious buses which are provided by several private bus agencies.

The constant development in the transport system and the increasing population actually paves the path for several transportation companies, which in association with the Bihar State Road Transport Corporation, has launched luxurious buses. These buses which provide excellent seating arrangements, generally allow Purnia to connect with the capital of Bihar and the other important cities of Bihar as well as of India, on a daily basis.

Furthermore, there are also a whole lot of single decker public buses in Purnia which serve the citizens within the district. We can see that how the bus stops are improving constantly across the state. The more people will be employed, the more they will travel by bus.

This will allow the government to make certain facilities at the bus stops. For example, few seats in the bus stops will help the senior citizens to sit in the stop while waiting for a bus. Not only the senior citizen, but anyone who is feeling sick or a pregnant woman can also be benefited with such noble developments.

The city of Purnia with such developed bus services along with a number of good resorts in the highways and also in the city, with a four star cinema hall like Rupbani, and so many tourist locations, is actually solidifying its position to attract more people to visit the City.
