If its urgent to travel from Chennai to Bangalore and dont have direct train at the time ....take any train towards Jolarpettai and get down at VANIYAMBADI or AMBUR (Kovai Exp has no stop at Vaniyambadi).......Many buses plying on Asian Highway 45 (AH45) will take you to Bangalore via Krishnagiri, Hosur in 2h 30min to 3hr.
It's tough to reach from attibele to silk board in 2 hours ,how can some one reach Bangalore within 3 hours from vaniyambadi or Ambur??
If u go via electronic City flyover it is possible to reach
Had u observed line for toll during peak hours??
go to anekal and then via kanakapura road u will reach faster to the city
But still no one will be able to reach Bangalore from vaniyambadi in 3 hour.
Why not take a bus straight away? There are plenty plying.
When the DD option was non existent, and the early morning trains like Kaziranga ran late, a cheap option was to take Kovai till JTJ and then take Sheshadri exp which literally arrives as Kovai leaves JTJ
Or we can take DHN ALLP and then take Seshadri if the passenger doesnt mind waiting. Buffer time would be more.
Buffer time would be more so will the suffering. Its Dhanbad Allepey after all. :)

Finally! Coach position indicators have been installed in all the PFs just a few months back. Now there will be no hassle in searching for your coaches. Restaurants like Ratna Cafe,Thalapakatti Biryani,Anjappar,etc. available near PF.No.9. Also cloak room is available near PF.No.9. AC waiting hall is available near PF.No.6. Its better to book your own cab to your destination from the station.

Never take an auto. Book a cab if you're not comfortable with public transport. I repeat for the sake of your hard earned money. NEVER take an auto.
No chance of bargaining??
my experience in south is that once they realize you don't speak local language they ask at least thrice the amount. is it the same case here??
Their demand starts from 100's and goes on multiplying for outsiders
More dreadful than them overcharging you is them tricking you. If you know Tamil, it'd be all fine (even the legal charges are pretty high though). But yes, in outsiders they see goldmines. And in all probability they'd go for mining the mine.
Actually share auto would be a better option. Used to take a share auto every time I went to Virugambakkam. I am not sure if they cover different places with ease, but if you were to get one, then nothing like it.
