The staff behaved good when we inquired about bus and fed with required information. They verified and announced clearly and repeatedly before the bus depart. The bus left in the mentioned timing. The driver was good in driving not rash. Overall experience is good.

Road from Chennai to Ooty via Selam, Erode, Avinasi is excellent. We started here by 8 Am and reached Ooty by 4 pm. Lunch and breakfast breaks 1 hour and 30 minutes. I spent Rs. 5500/-for diesel (Innova). Very comfortable journey. There are veg and non-veg hotels on the way. Take water bottles with you. While returning back started at 7. 30 Am and reached home (Chennai) at 4 Pm.
