I travelled by train. Though I booked my tickets online, I had to face a lot of problems. But finally, I did get the tickets. The food inside the train is very bad, and I would suggest, if possible, carry your own food. If you eat the food they serve that would certainly make you fall sick.

KSRTC has wide variety of buses and the maintenance of buses are really good. The punctuality and the behaviour of staff are good. Airavat AC Volvo, Multi-Axle, Club class, Gold class, Airavat Superia, Airavat Bliss are the AC buses which are good. If travelling on a weekend, it is advised to book the tickets in advance otherwise you will end up getting no tickets. Whereas during the weekdays, you will always get tickets as there are more number of services available. More »

The train was very good I must say. We bought our food from the station and it was cheap! The best part was that the train was time and we reached our destination without any hassle. And I must admit, I had a good time! The fact that it was neat and tidy helped a lot. And also because we carried our own food and did not depend on the food from the Indian railways. More »

It was an excellent service with fully A/C facility. The services offered were really awesome and we had a comfortable train ride! Besides, snacks and drinking waters are well served with care; and more importantly different types of food was served, you could choose as per your choice! More »
