7.GOING TO Marudhamalai/TNAU/BU/RS Puram FROM CBF
*Planning to goto Marudhamalai Murugan Temple? To the state's sole agricultural university? To the north indians' resident hub RS Puram? ALIGHT HERE.
*This station is too nearer to all these locations than CBE MAIN and has enough bus connectivity and taxis and autos are also available
widely. Also you can avoid the huge slack time between CBF and CBE which happens for most trains.
CBF - RS Puram 2.2 KMS
*FREQUENT BUS ROUTE: 70 Power House Bus Stop
1,1A,1B,1D,1E From CBF Flyover Bus Stop
CBF - Bharathiar University & Law College 11 KMS
CBF - Marudhamalai Murugan Temple 12.5 KMS

For people getting down at CBE Main.
S26, S15, 1A and 46 go directly to maruthamalai but their frequency is poor.
Bus no 1C can be used to get down at vadavalli and proceed onwards towards maruthamalai. 1C has excellent frequency throughout the day. Onwards one can catch 70 from vadavalli to maruthamalai which also has excellent frequency.
For going upto navavoor pirivu/kalveerampalayam and
thomdamuthur, one can catch 64 series from railway station but on opposite side as bus comes from gandhipuram and goes via townhall.
For people getting down at odd hours at CBE Main, they can proceed to Gandhipuram and get direct bus to vadavalli/maruthamalai (70 series). This is useful for people coming by island, YPR-CAN from bangalore.
In return direction, according to a TNSTC conductor, the first bus from maruthamalai to gandhipuram (70 series) is at 3.50 am for every 10 mins. I have personally caught a bus at 4.15am for CBE Main (S26).
Please note, during summers there have been elephant herds spotted around maruthamalai area at odd hours. A herd has also destroyed shops near the maruthamalai bus stand. It would be advisable if people be careful while travelling at odd hours.

To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
