Private buses between Chandigarh and Jalandhar
As Jalandhar lies on the Chandigarh Amritsar route there is no dedicated Chandigarh Jalandhar bus service. Private bus operators charge up to Amritsar if you want to get down at Jalandhar so Chandigarh to Amritsar and Chandigarh to Jalandhar ticket cost is the same. These buses do not enter the city so the dropping and pick-up point at Jalandhar is the bye pas, where one road diverts towards Amritsar. The city center is about 4 kilometers from this place.

Chandigarh to Jalandhar by train
Being at a diversion of northern railways from Ambala Chandigarh is connected to rest of India through Ambala only. There are no direct Chandigarh to Jalandhar trains. One has to go to Ambala at a distance of 45 kilometers from Chandigarh to catch train for Jalandhar. As Jalandhar is on the opposite side, this increases the distance and travel time so people prefer to travel by bus only.
