Rajkot- Our Birthplace.

Rajkot (Gujaratiરાજકોટ Rājkot) is the fourth largest city in the state of GujaratIndia, after AhmedabadSurat, andVadodara. Rajkot is the 35th-largest urban agglomeration in India, with a population more than 1.6 million as of 2012. Rajkot is also the 22nd-fastest-growing city in the world. Rajkot is frequently referred to as "Rangilu Rajkot" (રંગીલુ રાજકોટ) meaning colorful Rajkot. The people of Rajkot like to enjoy themselves to the fullest no matter which season or time of the day. You can find them eating out at 1 am. Shopkeepers mostly close their business between 1.30 pm to 4.30 pm. Rajkot is famous for its jewellery market, silk embroidery and watch parts. The city hosts several small scale manufacturing industries. Some of the industrial products for which Rajkot is known include bearings, diesel engines, kitchen knives and other cutting appliances, watch parts (cases & bracelets), automotive parts, forging industry, casting industry, machine tools,submersible pumps share market and software development.Rajkot is also famous for its textile printing units, which produce cotton sulvar-suits and cotton print sarees, and also make a pure silk patoda.

It was in this very city of Rajkot that Eagle travels started its operations in the year 1978 with just 2 buses running between Rajkot - Mumbai under the aegis of our founder chairman Sh Rasiklal Damjibhai Golwala more out of a necessity. It was in the year 1971 when our founder chairman was given the responsibility to book bus in order to receive a marriage party arriving in Rajkot, Since the bus operator goofed up & Sh Rasiklal Damjilal
Golwala faced a lot of flax from his father,This incident became the root cause of the start of a travel company "Saurashtra Tourist Corporation" which today is known as Eagle Travels. Sh Rasiklal Damjilal Golwala started his operations in 1972 when he self drove a Dosz truck from Delhi & converted it into a bus. This bus was used for marriage & tourist work primarily when in the year 1976 Railway bridge at Damanaganga river collapsed due to heavy rains & the traffic was badly hit. It was in this year when for the first time the bus was made to run between Rajkot & Mumbai.  Such incidents raised the confidence of our founder chairman to take the plunge & start  bus services between Rajkot & Mumbai regularly.

Today Eagle travels boasts of a large fleet of over 200 buses which only not ply across 25 cities but are also preferred mode of transport for companies like TORRENT, TATA NANO,AMW,ESSAR etc..
 In order to celebrate our completion of 35 years in the service, Eagle travels has launched super premium luxury services between Rajkot - Mumbai via Ahmedabad under the brand name of  CLUB ONE.

Its our agenda everyday to bring more & more smiles to the faces of our passengers, a Mission which our founder chairman has given us.
