Shree Balaji Travels Lohawat’s bullet bus gets its name from its sleek and distinctive aerodynamic bus body design that sets it apart from regular buses in India.

It resembles a bullet train, with a streamlined body designed to minimize air resistance and offer a smoother, faster ride as well as increased fuel efficiency.
