Quick guide for Kodaikanal bound tourists from MDU.
1) Exit from the station. Walk ahead. Take a right turn.
2) Walk to the traffic signal to reach Periyar bus-stand.
3) Take a local bus to Arapalayam bus stand. Bus#48 is one of them. It'd take 15 minutes and Rs.9/- in the bus.
4)

From Arapalayam bus stand, take the bus to Kodaikanal, it'd take 3.5-4 hrs and Rs. 62/- for the journey.
5) In return, the last direct bus to MDU from Kodaikanal is at around 17:15. So DO NOT plan a departure later than that.
6) In case you get late, you can get a Dindigul bound bus to Batlagundu (from where you can change for MDU) but even that service isn't available after 19:30.

Good info,
do you have timings of buses from kodaikanal to madurai in afternoon, as per your info the last bus to madurai is at 17.15 however in the chart the last bus is at 19.15 so guess this is the arrival time of this bus at madurai.
Is it possible to get a seat in madurai in morning on sunday between 7-9 am at madurai and at kodaikanal between 3 and 5 pm on sunday. Planning to go in mid july

It is totally possible, you just need to be quick and board the bus as soon as it arrives.
I went there on long weekends, and managed to get a seat. So not that tough.

The 7PM departure bus from Kodai may or may not be available. Suggest you to depart before 5.
Also from Kodai, getting a seat is easier.

Not too rash, the drivers are pretty experienced.
Reservation is on spot, advance reservation isn't allowed in my knowledge.

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

    A minor update, but may impact many members: Hereafter, FMs will be able to delete invalid Red Flags on Imaginary trains.

    -@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,...

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far.
