The bus was excellent throughout to and fro journey. The timing was also perfect. The sleeper coach was extremely clean and the staff was courteous as well. The starting point as well as the drop off points at the destination and boarding points was centrally located and easily accessible.

Service your car (my clutch wire broke on the evening of the trip and had to postpone the trip till I got my car towed and repaired took overnight. I wanted to see sunrise in Krishnagiri - unfortunately didn't happen. Roads are still being repaired - I had read a 2012 review that roads are being repaired. 2 years on still in that bad state. Once you are near Pondicherry, there is a toll road and it feels heaven after you rode through hell. Plan a stop at Gingee either before Pondi visit or after. It is worth it. Plan a stop at Tirukovilur, it is worth it. You can get road side dhabas on the way.

After many promises to my child of going to Pondicherry and then cancelling due to various reasons, finally got to go to Pondi on March 30th 2014. We drove to Pondi in our alto and the roads are still not good and is being developed. So you will definitely take a good 8 hour to reach Pondi from...more »

It was an excellent drive. I started early morning and took the Bangalore- Hosur - Krishnagiri - Vellore - Arcot - Vandavasi- Tindivanam – Pondicherry route. This route is around 375 km and took me 6 hrs. I took this route as the other options took more time or the road was not in good shape. The road till Arcot is 6 lane as it is the road leading to Chennai. One has to take a deviation right after Arcot towards Vandavasi. The road from here till Pondicherry is 2 lane but it is in good condition and there is not much of traffic (I crossed this between 8-11 a.m). You can maintain an average speed of 80 km on this part. You have to look for a bypass while crossing Cheyyar and Vandavasi as the drive through town will lead to loss of 30-45 mins. Take break (coffee/food) before Vellore and there are lots of good places. I stopped at 2 points - after Krishnagiri if you drive for another 30 km you will see signs of 'Kumakonam A1 degree coffee shops' - do stop at one of these points. Right after this before one of the tools is nice restaurant by name 'Chola'. They offer good food at reasonable price

The reason why I prefer car over any other transport is because I can stop wherever I want. Besides, I also have the freedom to travel around the place according to my wish. Whenever I feel like travelling to Pondicherry, I hire a car and set out for the destination. And it is always fun. It is always fun to visit the place with family or friends.

Bus was ok, but stopped at a village for nature’s call. Infact it should have stopped near some restaurant or good place where ladies could go for toilet without fear. Service was good. Started on time and reached on time. Travellers should pick this because it has sleeping facility.
