My friends and I reserved and boarded a train and the journey was very good. Over all it took 3 hrs to reach the destination. It has more than 10 stoppages and train went in middle of the hill and we felt like we went for an adventure trip and the journey was very good.

It was a bad train travel experience from Tirupati to Chennai as the toilets were not clean and the AC was not working well.

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.
