This is the reason for tourists to prefer personal cab(30-50 age group) over public transport when with family and its economical for Destinations like Mysore, Coorg, Ooty, Yercaud, Kodai, wayanad. All sight seeing are way apart and you need a vehicle and local transport is expensive.

Buses covering all the tourist places from morning to evening will be operated in Kodaikanal only during summer season i believe, for an amount of rs. 500 per head i guess.
