  1. you are doing a great job by having this bl og. first i congradulate you for that. i’m a regular user of tnstc between trichy and chennai and also salem. few things in tnstc can improve. first is the speed .especially the tnstc salem buses and tnstc kumbakonam buses are really slow. they take 8.30 hours to cover the salem chennai route. but htey take only 7 hrs between chennai and trichy. the tnstc vpm buese are little on the quicker side compared to the others. the setc buses are worst in this matter. the setc has the worst maintained buses in the above route. hope they get some now ones in the near future.


  2. Dear Karthi,
    Is this the latest updated schedule,bcoz i have to take journey from chennai to karaikal as per your updated schedule.kindly reply for my request.


  3. In Southern districts especially tirunelveli, Kanyakumari, Tuticourin, Madurai and theni are having separate SETC depots in their districts . But in our Virudhunagar District there is no SETC depot. Even tirunelveli, Kanyakumari, Tuticourin are having each two depots in their districts and one more depot in thiruvanathapuram. When ever we go for long journey we are facing lot of struggle to board the buses which are starting from southern districts and passing through our districts, because they never allowed to board in that buses even that buses having lot of vacant seats. There are three major National highways are passing through our district.

    Compared to other southern districts we can strongly notify that our district having many industries , but still lake of transporatation facilities.

    Govt must understand our virudhunagar district’s people situation, and take necessary steps and immediately set up a seperate SETC depot in our district head quarter (VIRUDHUNAGAR) and operate long route buses from Virudhunagar, Rajapalayam, Sivakasi, Srivilliputhur, Aruppukottai, Sattur, Kovilpatti, Kamuthi, Thiruchuli, Narikudi and sayalkudi.

    Virudhunagar is also having a useless New bus stand , So, SETC management don’t worry about location of the depot. and Virudhunagar is the Centre place of the district it is more suitable for SETC maintenance and workshop depot.

  6. I appreciate the effort whoever is taking this initiative to inform the people of TamilNadu about the timings of the buses. But i am sure you may have encountered a lot of hurdles in getting the timings of the buses. Actually the concerned authorities of the TNSTCs should notify the timings periodically. But they not only do that, they will not even give a proper answer to those who come forward to do their work. The TNSTC and the SETC are the major transport operators in tamilnadu, though you could never get the timings through some electronic media like Web or mobile apps unless and otherwise you approach a time keeper at the terminus on the journey day, you could never plan your travel in advance if you are planing to travel by TNSTC. Though the SETC have a reservation system you could not book on your own. That is why the omni buses are growing in strength. If the govt organisation is working properly and technologically upto date with their strength of more than 18000 Govt buses no private players could enter. But that is not happening and will never happen
