Night service in 48AD Arapalayam to Thirumangalam route
Madurai city has good number of night services running across core city areas and also connecting the various bus stands located in Madurai. The frequencies are more in the following routes.
- 77B – Arapalayam to Mattuthavani via Simmakkal, Goripalayam, Court
- 48 – Arapalayam to Thirumangalam via Periar, Tiruparankundram, Thirunagar, Kappalur colony
- N4C – Arapalayam to Mattuthavani via Periar, Theppakulam, Anna Nagar
- 700 – Periar to Mattuthavani via Simmakkal, Goripalayam, Court
Night city services were also tried in routes like R.No 4 – Arapalayam to Ring road via Periar, Theppakulam, Iravathanallur. Haven’t seen more new routes getting added to these night services for long time.
In the recent past, they have added new night services in R.No “48AD Arapalayam to Thirumangalam via Byepass road“. Very good move by TNSTC-Madurai. This new night services will benefit the passengers located close to Kaalavasal, Doraisamy nagar, TNSTC HO etc., In day time, this route enjoys good frequency as it is faster to reach Thirumangalam from Arapalayam and vice versa compared to the buses taking Periar BS route.
