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.

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.

From the room, we can view the Rock fort temple and Cauvery River and the staff behaviour is also really good. Restaurant is situated in the ground...more »
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.
My travel in Jet Airways to Tiruchirappalli from Chennai was very comfortable and hassle-free. The Check in at Chennai and announcements at the Airport were quite clear. The in-flight service was very good as also the meals served. At the arriving airport also Staff of Jet Airlines were at hand to help. Great Airlines and a reliable one!
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.
The distance between Bangalore and Trichy is almost 370 km. It takes six hours, by road. The best way to reach Trichy from Bangalore, is to take a bus till Salem, which will go through Hosur and then, change another bus for Bangalore, which will go through Namakkal. There are direct buses from Bangalore to Trichy, but frequencies are very less and also not regular. So, the best way, is to change buses at Salem, where one can find plenty of buses going to Trichy.
