This is one of the shortest route to Tirupati and the roads are in good condition. Only in Andhra the speed breakers are not highlighted and so during night driving caution must be taken. On the way there are no good hotels in this route. So if any plan for night journey care must be taken.

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.
