"Comfortable drive"

We left Bangalore at 3 pm on Friday. We got a little lucky because of the all-India strike on Friday. The roads were empty and we exited Bangalore within about 40 minutes. Having crossed Mahadevpura, we joined the Bangalore-Tirupati highway, which is a very good road. The road condition is superb. There are lots of petrol pumps and restaurants on the way, which is really convenient even if you travel with elderly people or little kids. After leaving Bangalore, the route bypasses Kolar and Hoskote before crossing over from Karnataka to AP. There are 3 toll posts before exiting Karnataka, where you pay Rs. 16, Rs. 64 and Rs. 24 respectively. This road lasts approximately 80 km after exiting Bangalore, and this stretch is a breeze. After leaving home, we covered the first 100 km in a little o ...Read More

"Comfortable & cheap"

The distance by train is more than road but train journey is cheaper. Being a fast passenger offers only Non-AC reserved accommodation and is comfortable overnighter leaving Bangalore at 20:30 hrs and reaching at 5:30 hrs in the morning. Provides a convenient way to sleep and get fresh for making the darshan next day morning. As its a Fast Passenger category train, the fare works out to be just about Rs.175/- per head for the comfort provided for the section. On weekends the train tends to be more crowded but TTE and RPF ensure that only genuine reserved passengers are present in the reserved sleeper coaches .

KSRTC has both AC and Non AC buses, they have a good name and crew members develop a good rapo with travellers. Buses are in very good condition and are comfortable. They are always on time and do reach on time. They do not rash drive. Timely breaks are given in good hotels for refreshments. You can book on line KSRTC buses and show sms as ticket, must carry a copy of id proof and show the sms ticket to the conductor, go green no paper.

Bangalore to Tirupati is one road trip I take regularly and even my kids enjoy the trip. We took off in my Swift Dezire. The distance between Bangalore and Tirupati is 246 km and the road goes through Kolar, Mulbagal and Chittor. If we need to talk about condition of roads, we can talk in two half’s. One from Bangalore- Mulbagal ( Andhra Pradesh border) and second from AP Border to Tirupati. The road between Bangalore till AP Border is four lane highway excellently laid and smooth to drive. While there are few diversions from Mulbagal to the border, you can still drive at 100 KMPH. You can see the difference once you cross the border post where the road becomes narrow and you may have to negotiate with large trucks at times. From Mulbagal till Palamner you would find that the comfort ...Read More
