"The road is excellent and hence the ride will be smooth"

Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) Airawatha service has been the best bus service provider between Chennai and Bangalore for years now. In fact, if you are travelling to and fro Bangalore, I would highly recommend KSRTC Airawatha Volvo AC service. Take the route via Vellore-Krishnagiri-Hosur. The road is excellent and hence the ride will be smooth. KSRTC Volvo AC buses always provide the best of services for the value of money that they charge. When compared to other bus service operators on the same route, KSRTC is much safer and better. They provide free 500 ml packaged mineral water and blankets. The conductor and driver team is very cordial and relaxed to deal with. Overall, KSRTC is a very good choice if you want to do bus between Chennai and Bangalore.

Smooth roads after Vellore to Hosur. Vellore to Hosur took around 5 hours. Hosur to Infantry road took 2 hours. Great job on the roads. Must try Kumbakonnam Coffee and Saravana Bhavan at Vellore. Morning drive to be the best. Visit to Golden Temple is a must.

An overnight train journey usually helps you save time. You can start your tour afresh the very next morning without delay. Tickets, if booked in advance will help one get a comfortable berth to have a good night\'s sleep, quite vital for a good trip. We had a pleasant journey as always!

"An overnight journey"

Overnight journey and the timings are convenient. Wish cleanliness of the coaches was better though. Even the second AC coach was not clean and had a very old look to it. The bedroll was being dragged along the floor by the attendant. The TTE was good and he finished off his work just after the train started facilitating early sleep. Train arrived late. I hear it is a normal happening with this train.

Sorry, we could not find preference of Travellers for this route.
