"Very good roads make for a excellent journey"

The bus allows you to advance book your ticket. The bus leaves within a 10mins time frame of its scheduled departure time. Every hour there is such a bus to Chennai. The bus is kept very clean and is A/c so you do not get tired. Also the leg space is also very good making it comfortable for my husband. This also has a good staff that ensure you get off at the correct place at Chennai. We found that despite the price of the ticket being three times the state Govt many people preferred to travel by this. It is also a very safe option with one scheduled stop on the way. There were provisions for recharging also. They did not stop between till Chennai which is just over 2 hours away. A very good option when you don't want to take a Taxi.

Usually I will avoid peak hours to reach the destination on time. But some cases I had bad experience especially traffic between Porur to Tynempet. Due to the metro train works in Chennai the traffic is high in recent days and this is the only thing I hate and had bad traveling experiences

Me and my friends together started from Vellore and a had lots and lots of fun. The first time I learnt how to ride a car. Its three hours journey from there really rememberable and fantastic. We planned to have outing like this every three months once after this wonderful journey.

The SVR buses are very comfortable to travel long distance journey. The drivers and the conductor of the buses are quite well. There was language problem as they didn\'t understand Hindi as well as English. So it was little bit tough to communicate with them. But the buses are very comfortable. Easy to travel and they dropped us at the scheduled time.

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