Our bus had to start by 10:40 p. M. From platform 3 of Shanthinagar bus stand. Till 11 p. Also there is no news of our bus. On the other side many Tamil Nadu buses left for Trichy. There is no inquiry counter and there are no announcements. At last the bus number came as message. A sigh of relief. There were not many seats in Shanthinagar bus stop to wait.
The driver never allowed us to board and he could not maneuver the bus to platform. Somehow the conductor checked our Mobile ticket and allowed us in. He slept off, it seems. The driver took Coimbatore route instead of Trichy route. After long distance, a passenger pointed out and then he turned. The bus which has to arrive by 5:30 a. Arrived by 8:30 am at Trichy.
In between the bus stopped at a hotel for coffee - but its toilet was Indian and not maintained well. Very difficult for senior citizens like me.
I saw one family with 2 small children suffering and consoled myself.

The hotel is walking distance from the bus stand. The rooms are big - with an extra bed, 3 of us could walk around freely. It is 24 hours check in. Very convenient for over night bus and train travel. There are marriage halls and travel company in the same mall. All the time autos and taxis are...more »

I am the regular user of KPN Travels. Bus was little delay during pick-up but it reached the destination on time. Staff are behaved . I booked sleeper bus, and the seats are neat and clean. I enjoy the journey with my little kid.They stopped in a hotel with good food and clean toilet facility. Price is little high but its okay.

Good road and can reach Trichy in less than 7 hours (Including food breaks). Ideal for a long drive and don't miss to visit Tanjavur (Additional 1 hour drive). You can also visit 'Kollimalai' or Koli hills on way to Trichy (you have to take diversion near Namakkal). There is a waterfall. Best to visit after Monsoon.

I had gone by own car and I was driving the entire trip. From Bangalore to Namakkal we have a good highway ,this stretch we can reach within five hours time. From Namakkal to Trichy the road is only two line and road condition is bad in some places.

Good road connectivity to Trichy via Salem. En-route you get many places to eat or rest. Comfortable to drive during the early hours of the day.If time permits one can visit Yercaud in Salem about 25 kms. Good hotels and resorts available. Trichy as a city has a good market place and worth shopping for steel utensils at Mangal & Mangal or Rathna Stores
