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 .

Have planned for a sudden trip to Tirupati. So needed an immediate transport facility to Tirupati. Thank god to KSRTC Rajahamsa. Comfortable, cozy, semi-sleeper seats, punctuality at timing and halts. Also the concession on the return trip. In case you won't find any option or hope at last you got this. Seat for sure. Frequent buses and manageable fare :)

One of the famous temple, visited by almost a lakh of people everyday, in south India. The temple of sri Balaji, situated on the top of Tirumala hills. Provides two ways to reach up there from Tirupati, either by bus from Tirupati or by walk from Alipiri.

The temple is famous for...more »

The bus arrived late at the boarding point (K R Puram), as there was traffic at K R Puram. Reached destination on time. It was a comfortable journey. The bus stops for a tea break. The seats were comfortable. I didn't find any charging points for mobile phones. No blankets will be provides as it was a super luxury bus service.

It was good travel, direction signs were good. And anybody whom we stopped and asked was able to give clear direction. Parking was not a problem, although it was a small place to park, which was quite far away (e. G. From queue entrance at Tirumala). But the entry permit to taxi costed not only money but the fellows demanded bribe without which they were delaying permits. The trucks going in the right most lane should be penalised.

If you are travelling by night, an AC bus with semi sleeper option would be the best. SVR Tours and Travels operates a multi axle bus that gets to Tirupati from Bangalore in about 4 hours. The roads are in excellent condition. The bus has a TV. Blankets are provided. Seats were reclining and maintained well. They do not provide water bottles, so it is advised to carry a bottle of water if you need.

Since it is a short journey, there are no scheduled halts except on request. They would stop beside the highway for a bio-break.
