Mostly private dealers like Red Bus, Parveen Travels are good as per my opinion. They give really neat service for AC, non-AC and sleeper coaches and I mostly travel in sleeper coaches. The roads from Chennai to Tirupathi is really clear and smooth. Also the bus has television and the seats are fully cushion and semi sleeper seats, which is enough nice to sit and sleep and watch over windows. If you are travelling by bus, keep in mind that, buy some water bottles, chips or snacks items and have a happy journey.

I travelled from Chennai to Tirupathi last month through the Garuda Transport. I booked the bus ticket via online. As it was an AC bus, so I felt very comfortable during my journey. They gave blanket too coz of night journey. There was TV also. I reached the destiny before half an hour. Then I started walking to the temple through the steps. It took more than 3 hours to reach the temple. It was raining and it was awesome. At last I saw God Venkatachala then I returned home.

The city has changed a lot since last year. More and more colorful it looks now a days. There are lot of Hotels which has come near to railway station and bus stand and at the outer fortune has built a new hotel which looks exquisite.

On the way to uphill the drive was excellent and the climate was awesome. The temp was around 19-25 celsius and it was drizzling like any other hill station. We took a room in Uttaradi Mutt which is at the backside of the temple and very near to the temple and the stay was pleasant.

The best time to visit Tirupati and Tirumala will be this time i.e, Oct - Nov times reason being the cowed will be less and climate will be pleasant.

Tirupati is a very holistic place. There are good transport facilities throughout the city. But we took Andhra Pradesh Tourism bus from Chennai to Tirupati. The bus was very luxurious and comfortable. Also, there was a guide for our trip. It was a very nice experience.
