Travel Review

Chennai-Tirupathy-Kumbakonam Review:

Chennai-Tirupathi by TNSTC

Dep time:21.30
Arr.time :01.40

Reached CMBT by 9 pm. Saw TPTY bay ruled by VPM guys.Most of the buses in good condition. But many buses left with only very few passengers. Saw APSRTC Sapthagiri luxury(s) got more number of passengers. It shows the lack of SD's there.
Boarded on 09.30pm Tiruthani depot guy was in mint condition. Saw more passengers in this particular bus than its predecessors. But later i know most of them Manaval Nagar/Tiruvallur people and some for Tirutani. After Tirutani only 6 people for Tirupati including me. 3x2 become 'Sleeper' coach for everyone
Enters Tiruvalangadu and Nagari from highway. But good news is overtakes those APSRTC's like flash.

Tirupathi-Kumbakonam by SETC

Dep time:19.45
Arr.time :05.25

First my plan was to take any bus to Vellore or Panruti the catch direct KMU bus. But later my mind turned to take SETC Tanjore Guy. (Because that is my travel with TPTY-TJ guy). Booked a ticket and waited in TPTY BS. Saw many new buses of VPM guys. My bus was ready in its bay from 07.15pm. Departs on correct time and the fellow drives slowly and reaches a motel before chittore by 09.15pm and departs there from 09.45 with Tiruppur SETC (this one only stops 15 mins).
Saw a action by TPTY-Cuddalore bus (32N-4136) which overtakes every bus. First it overtakes APSRTC Express then my bus and third victim is one ACC in front of us.(should be to Banglore). Overtakes three state Govt. buses in just 2 mins But my one is overtaked by three state Govt.buses in a row (that ACC,TNSTC and APSRTC)
Reached Vellore by 11.20 pm and conductor calls passengers for VPM and KUM. Suddenly a driver of TNSTC Vellore to VPM which stands nereby (dep time:11.30) make fight between the conductor and at last VPM wins. (This is the first time I saw SETC crews says sorry with TNSTC). Then I took sleep and missed VPM and Panruti. Later I dropped in 05.25am.

PS: Most of the Tanjore depot SETC guys changed to '1 to 5' for every routes and Digital Green LED board with some also have LED in their windshields.
