Bus quality and staff behavior was very good. Bus was suppose to start by 10. 30 but started only by 11. 00 pm. Should have reached Coimbatore by 6. 30 Am but reached only by 7. 45 Am. Stopped for a 10 min break but at a motel where there were no rest rooms for gents what is the use???

Travelled from Chennai to Coimbatore via Uluindurpet, Athur. This was a toll road all the way up-to Coimbatore.

I could reach Coimbatore in eight hours of leisurely driving. You could have save another half hour if I had left Chennai early in the morning say 6 Am instead of 10 Am, I chose to start.

One can take a break at Salem for food. Adyar Ananda Bhavan has good restaurant in the Salem by pass road and hence no need to go into the city.

I would recommend this route instead of the Kirhsnagairi, Dharmapuri route which would be another 50 km extra.

I started at 9.30PM at Thambaram but the bus got moved around 12AM from Chennai. The Staff behavior was very bad. I never travel again in the same bus. Finally I have reached Coimbatore at 9AM. Seat was not good.

I was travelling from Chennai to Coimbatore in PSM Travels. my boarding point is Thambaram at 11.30 but bus did not come to the boarding point. I ask travels he told bus will not come to Thambaram and I need to board the bus from Perugalathur. It was delayed and correct information was not given by the bus operator.
