Bishkek to Tashkent bus?

Post by Nara »

I’ve read two English-language news sites that said a Bishkek to Tashkent bus became operational as of May 2018, departing daily in the late evening.

One article said the bus departs from the Eastern Bus station in Bishkek, and the other article mentions the Western Bus station. Does anyone have any information about this and which is correct?

Thanks in advance if anyone has any info :)

Do let us know when you find out for sure, but I guess it will be the bigger western bus station.

I tried buying 2 tickets at Bishkek western bus station today (Wednesday) at around 6:15PM to go to Tashkent, but there was only one seat left.

So get your ticket early.

Now we are taking another bus which goes to Kazakh/Uzbek border (2 ticket = 1700 som) and then we need to find buses to Tashkent. So there is an alternative, but less convenient.

I can confirm that it works :D
We took the bus yesterday at 10 Pm from the west bus station in Bishkek. Actually the bus departs just behind the big building next to the busy west bus station, where all the mashrutkas depart.
There was another, earlier bus too, I think around 6.30 pm. We payed 2000 som for the tickets (we bought them one day in advance though). The bus driver takes another 100 som for every piece of luggage that you want to put in the trunk.
After two hours, you reach the Kazakh border, where it is a bit chaotic. You step out of the bus an pass the Kyrgyz and Kazakh customs. It took us two hours to do so.
Then you have a couple of hours, where you can try to sleep. For me it worked quite well. In the morning the bus reaches the Uzbek-Kazakh border. We had to spend another two hours there.
After 13 hours the bus reached the taschkent bus station.
So, I hope this helps some of those who plan to do the same trip!
