The Delhi–Lahore Bus, officially known as Sada-e-Sarhad (Urdu: صداِ سرحد, Hindi: सदा ए सरहद, translation: Call of the Frontier), is a passenger bus service connecting the Indian capital of Delhi with the city of Lahore, Pakistan via the border transit post at Wagah. The Routemaster bus number 10 was of symbolic importance to the efforts of the governments of both nations to foster peaceful and friendly relations. In its inaugural run on February 19, 1999, the bus carried the then-Indian Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, who was to attend a summit in Lahore and was received by his Pakistani counterpart, Nawaz Sharif at Wagah.
Officially launching its services on March 16, the bus service was not halted even after the outbreak of the Kargil War. The bus service was halted in the aftermath of the 2001 Indian Parliament attack, which led to a serious confrontation between the two neighbours.

Who got on a bus bound for Ealing.

Please dont spit on the floor,
So he carefully spat on the ceiling.”
