New bus between Dushanbe and Khujand

Post by Kalpazan »

There is a new bus since May 1st 2023 between Dushanbe and Khujand. Rough translation in English:

Between Dushanbe and Khujand from May 1, a bus flight began to run. It was announced by the company back in April on the official Asian Express Facebook page.
According to Sugdnews, the first passenger flight left Dushanbe for Khujand on May 1, and the bus returns in the opposite direction today, May 2.
The company has allocated 3 buses that will operate flights, the number of which the carrier company will adjust depending on demand and line load.
According to the schedule, the bus will depart daily for Khujand at 8 am from a stop at the Dushanbe bus station (Asian Express Terminal).
From Khujand to Dushanbe, it will depart at 07:00 from the old bus station (Pakhtakor mahalla).
On the way, the bus will make two stops in Khusheri and Shahristan.
The cost of a one-way ticket is 85 somoni.
The bus route "Dushanbe-Penjikent" was also resumed. The cost of a trip in one direction is 70 somoni.
Until today, there were no bus flights between the capital of the country and Khujand. Asian Express carried out a test flight last year, but due to repair work in the Istiklol tunnel, it was suspended.
On the Dushanbe-Khujand-Dushanbe route, passengers mainly use taxi services.
The price for a taxi starts from 150 somoni one way.

I took it today from Khujand to Dushanbe.

khujand departure 7 am (very punctual), everyday, 80 somoni,local people call it ëba station, just search Staryy Avtovokza in Google map.

The bus like Toyota Coster, has no luggage compartment, and everyone’s luggage is placed in the aisle, and the whole process shuttles between very high mountains.

1 pm arrived Dushanbe, Grand Bus Terminal

Just took this bus yesterday, from Dushanbe to Khujand. It left at 8:30 (which I believe is half an hour late, as we waited for seats to fill up) and was an overall fine ride, the driver was vetted and had his information inside the bus. We arrived in Khujand around 14:30.

Took this bus from Khujand fo Dushanbe on Sept 2nd. Larger Asian Express coach was there but not in use, we took a smaller bus.

We departed at 7:50 am but then turned the corner so the bus driver could talk with some people outside. Left at 8:20. On our way up the driver told everyone the brakes had issues and we ended up engine breaking downhill, going 10-15mph half the time. Two stops at each of the tunnels to pee, no proper stops in any city for food to save time. Took 8 hours. Bus Driver was making jokes and everyone seemed to be having a good time but us.

85 somoni. Just get a shared car.
