Very frequent town buses (Bus number 1 and 2) from Station to CMC and back. Don't fall into the trap of Auto drivers. They charge too much, fleece the innocent patients and are very rude. They'll demand more than agreed amount once you reach the destination.

Alight here to reach magnificent Golden Temple of Sripuram. As soon as you alight from train walk just 150m from station entrance to Railway station bus stop (near Katpadi Bridge in image) where Bus No. 1/2 are very frequently available. Board it and ask for "NEW BUS STAND", from new bus stand switch to "Sripuram" buses that stand near Ranipet/walaja/arcot buses. Journey time: 20+40min on average traffic

For going to CMC, Vellore: Bus, Auto-rickshaw available outside of PF 1. Bus frequency is very good. As per my suggestion, Bus is better than Auto rickshaw although it is crowd. Auto-rickshaw driver demands very high fare.

Passenger Waiting Room, Cloak Room is available on PF 2. Major disadvantage of this station is: There is no fan in any of the platforms.

People can use same Bus nos. 1 and 2 for reaching both New bus stand and Old bus stand. Frequency of these buses are very high rather than hiring Autos...

In a week 4 days on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday there are weekly trains to tirupati from katpadi at 5.30am and DEMU service is there daily at 6.15 am. Regarding bus service outside station you will get buses to chittoor regularly apart from direct buses occasionally. Road is in average condition till chittoor and further its good.

Sorry, I'm living in Eastwards of this station i.e near WJR and have appropriate routes over there. But, one thing which for sure is, Kaveri Exp mostly doesn't run on time. Hence, when you arrive at KPD, it should be convenient for you wait for 57404 KPD-TPTY DEMU, rather than Say you arrive 5am max, catch a Public transport, reach New bus stand, then catch Tirupati bus which won't make that convenient journey...
