Airavath Volvo is 2 + 2 Pushback Volvo A/c Bus
Rajahamsa means 2+2 pushback bus with No A/C.


Get bus first from Bangalore to Mysore and from mysore, there are around 5 to 6 buses to Gonikoppal in the day time.Timings I am not sure but.

P.S:-

1. Once you are in the region, you may use the actual town names instead of Coorg as that will be confusing for local people as there is no place called Coorg actually.

2. It's KSRTC buses

Hope this helps

Manish,

I don't have personal experience of cab . I would say, you can use the Volvo A/c City services just in front of BIAL to get to "Mysore road Bus stand" from where you can get bus to mysore and get a cab from mysore to Ponnampet. Yes, For comfort, Getting cab from airport to Ponnampet is better but I don't have any idea of the cost involved. But you need to pay 2-way fare for Taxi even though you are expecting just a drop.

1. Mr.Velu rightly pointed out "You need to pay 2-way fare for Taxi even though you are expecting just a drop.", Which is mostly the case.
2. Typical Tourist taxis charge (Although I also don't have much of a cab experience)
CostPerKM (Varies on vehicle from Rs 6 - upwards) (indica,Sumo,Innova)
+ Driver Bata (Rs 200 upwards)
+ Extra Bata for driving in the night / Overtime
Also there is a MinKms (usually >250)which you need to pay for irrespctive of whether you use the no of Kms or not.
There are a few cab company's that charge a flat rate or a flat rate per KMs.
Including point 1 (^) a budget would be around Rs.5000.
(Other's having more recent/frequent experiences please correct me if the figure is wrong)
Better would be as suggested to take the mysore route.
