Mahatma Gandhi Bus Station (MGBS) is a bus station in the southern part of Hyderabad city, India. It’s also known by its other name as Imlibun bus station. What made me write about it is that, it’s the fifth largest bus station in Asia and no doubt that it’s the largest of such kind in India.
The Mahatma Gandhi Bus Station is spread over an area of 30 acres with various facilities matching Indian customer demands. There are altogether 74 platforms for incoming and outgoing buses, a waiting hall spread over an area of over 7000 square meters and a vast area for private parking. The bus terminus is situated on the banks of Musi River and it’s accessible by two major and two minor roads connecting the station. It’s owned by Andhra Pradesh State Road Transport Corporation (APSRTC).
For long distances APSRTC buses, this is one of the two source/destination points in Hyderabad the other being the Jubilee Bus Station. It connects the government based bus services to adjacent states like Chattisgragh, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Orissa, Tamil Nadu, Goa and they arrive or leave from here daily.
