When I did a search on Google Maps for how to get from one destination to another all I saw were walking routes and driving routes. I didn't see any bus routes.

Transport in Delhi#Buses mentions DTC Bus Routes but there it looks like I have to look at every route until I find one that passes by the two destinations. And even then it doesn't have the schedule.

Any ideas?

I dont know where you are from, but I'd suggest you google up some pics or videos on Delhi buses. I wouldn't want them buses to be my ride in rush hour at least : i.images.cdn.fotopedia.com/… and 2.bp.blogspot.com/-gqh3TWP-Oek/T4uvt2QmSII/AAAAAAAAA0c/… –  happybuddha Nov 8 '13 at 17:52

The Delhi Transport Corporation has its own home page where it lists the schedule for different bus routes in a downloadable Excel spreadsheet. (Different routes are listed in different "sheets" within the spreadsheet so switch using the tabs at the bottom.) There's a second spreadsheet for fare stages that lists all stops on a particular route (you need to switch to the "Fare Stage" tab). Perhaps not the most intuitive way but at least you have the information in some form. Usually, people at bus stops will be happy to help you out with information on what bus route to take (if they speak English, that is).

Another pertinent point is that given Delhi's traffic, it's highly unlikely that the bus schedule will be helpful. YMMV, don't expect the buses to turn up or reach their destination on time.
