AP Road Transport Corporation (APSRTC), in an initiative to facilitate easy movement of hundreds of passengers leading to and from Vijayawada and its nearby locations, has decided to run special services between Vijayawada and the Shamshabad airport. Inaugurated on the 6th April at the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport, Shamshabad, the service includes a daily round trip of a Garuda Volvo service bus carrying passengers between the international airport in Hyderabad, and Vijaywada.
Starting from April 6, a bus will start everyday at the airport at 6:30am and reach Vijayawada at 1:30pm. Halts will be made at LB Nagar in Hyderabad and Suryapet in Nalgonda district. Its return journey will start at 2:30pm from Vijayawada, and will end at 8:30pm at the Shamshabad airport.
Soon, towns Karimnagar, Kurnool, Warangal will also be added to the services.

It is difficult to catch the Bus to Vijayawada which starts 6.30am at RGIA .The international passengers arriving erly hrs it will take some time to clear their customs .If the departure time 7.30am is convenient.
U can book it from http://www.apsrtconline.in/ , but they stopped to Vijayawada

No doubt it is a very useful service. But there is no clarity how to book the ticket from other countries. For example my wife will be arriving on 18th of April. I bought a bus ticketfor her. If I want to send it by expressv mail to her it cost more money. I can fax or scan it and send it. My question is do they accept copy of the ticket? If they insist on original, then how to produce it. I will appreciate it , if you kindly bring to the notice of APSRTC authorities. Sincerely Ravi K Visakhapatnam
Thanks to APSRTC this service will usefull to vijayawada surrounding people.my sincere suggesion to introduce one more service at 8 am because all gulf flights were landing arrd 5am only. when the person comming out from clearing his baggage &customs it is 8am.
