On 2nd November,2010 I happened to travel from Bangalore to Kumili in the newly introduced Kar SRSTC Volvo Bus. The bus started from Majestic at sharp 20-45 hrs and since the traffic was heavy it took 1 hr to reach Shantinagar BS and by 22-30 it reached Hosur and the next stop was at Uthankudi near Krishnagiri where the bus stopped for 20 minutes dinner time and by 23-45 it left there and via Salem, Namakkal, Karur it reached Dindigul around 04-30 in the morning and via Batalakundu it reached Theni at 06-00 and at Kumily by 07-15.
It was a very nice journey and since there was not much publicity about the bus there were only 11 pax in the bus and it is a convenient link for those going to Madurai, Kodaikanal, Palani and to Kerala especially those going to High Ranges, Kottayam. The fare is Rs.585 and the Running time is 10 h! rs and 15 min. I wish it will get more passengers during the Sabarimala season as it is the shortest route.
