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.

If you miss this train at CSTM, take PNVL local.. All probabilities, this train may still be arriving at Panvel by the time local takes you there. If you miss there also, come back by return local train.

Buses towards Pollachi,palani, Palakkad etc will depart from Ukkadam bustand which is about 3 kms from railway station. There are plenty of buses from railway station to Ukkadam bus stand from the main entrance side.

Hello, How to reach airport from CBE? as I arrive by 3.30AM in CBE from Kerala. I don't want to get ripped off by local autos. Not sure if here is a prepaid auto or taxi stand. Can I call Ola to station. Kindly guide.
Anyone from Coimbatore or expert to help here?

Okay, let me give my experience! I got down at station and just booked an Ola at 3.45AM. It was just 130 rupees :)
Not bad at all. I was thinking I get ripped off at such an early trip to airport from town!
  
8. MTP ROAD BUS STAND
* PART OF CBE MAIN - CBE BUS STATIONS CONNECTIVITY *
* MTP ROAD BS is nothing but the bus stand on Mettupalayam (Ooty) Road. Locally called as 'New bus stand'
* It is the only BS in Western TN certified with ISO

Actually the plan was to have all MTP, Sathy, Nilgiris and Karnataka buses to shed here, which has not happened now.
* Now most of the KSRTC buses heading to destinations other than SBC like MYS,DVG,HARIHAR,SHIMOGA,KOLLUR,KOLLEHAL,CHIKMAGALU R,MANGALORE,MADIKERI,UDUPI start from MTP Road BS. Buses to and fro Mettupalayam, Ooty, Coonoor, Gudalur pass through the BS.
*CBE MAIN TO MTP RD BS - 32 SERIES (Frequently available)
*PTJ/Ukkadam BS - MTP RD BS - 4 SERIES (Frequently available)

I used to travel in this train almost a decade ago. I do not even remember whether catering was available, THEN. Now, that IRI mentions that catering is available, I would like to know when going from SBC to BGM / MRJ / KOP is catering available after UBL?

I am asking this as I had a very BAD experience perhaps somewhere in between 1998 - 2000 - I was travelling from SBC to BGM and the journey upto DWR was as usual, but once our train crossed Alnavar (LWR)
...
more...
we had too many un-scheduled stoppages midway on the tracks in 'thick n dense' Dandeli Forests - Somehow the train reached NAGARGALI station. And it never moved further from there until I was there. The reason - a goods train that was just ahead of our train had derailed ahead of NAG. At this single platform stn, we had nothing to eat. Just a small tea shop outside the stn. We helplessly waited for more than 3 hours at this station. However, some locals made some hot UPMA / UPPIT and OGGARANE AVVALAKKI (Puffed rice dish) and sold to helpless and hungry passengers. The IR authorities then arranged 3 to 4 KSRTC buses from Dharwad Depot that arrived by around 12 noon and we were ferried to BGM - I was happy to reach BGM at 2 p.m. and passengers who were bound further were arranged accommodation in a spl train from BGM to Miraj.
I am strongly making this a point that when this train reaches UBL, its too early in the morning and most of the passengers are either asleep or do not bother to have anything more than a cup of tea/coffee at UBL, though hot and tasty IDLYs and WADAs are available at UBL from 5 a.m. itself. Further, after LWR, its thick forest, and forest and forest and nothing else upto Khanapur.
So my suggestion - carry some packed snacks (biscuits/cakes/wafers/wafer-biscuits etc) and at least a few liters of drinking water as a contingency measure - especially if you are travelling with kids. Alternately, make sure you are awake when train reaches UBL and then get some IDLY / WADAs as parcel. Its always best to have these contingency plans for food / water ready before starting your journey.
And last thought - Most of us, now-a-days carry less cash while travelling in trains for various reasons - one of them being - ATMs are available at stations - but its good to have some cash handy in emergencies when one is stuck in between two big stations - where there is nothing available and then imagine that you had to make quite a distance by hiring some vehicle locally to reach nearest ATM - this helps.

TRAVEL SAFE - PLAN for CONTINGENCY - Pantry/catering available or not - Carry enough food and water.

BGM has everything. Kunda, Idly Wadas (not as good as in UBL), Wada Paav, Egg Omlets, etc. Many Engineering students from KLE Engg college and GIT Engg college of BGM come here to savour EGG omlets, Bhurji, Half-boiled (Bull's eye) etc between 12 midnight and 3 a.m. - when all restaurants are closed and these hungry-guts need to cool down their hunger. And I do not want to forget to mention here that ADRAK ki CHAAI is also available inside and also outside of the BGM STN.

I was in Belgaum recently. The food options is not good even now. Regarding yatrachef the minimum order for Belgaum is Rs 180 which I think is not good for single travelers.
