There will be no buses available from ooty to Bangalore between 4pm and 8pm as the travel time is 7-8 hrs as no one will take the bus when it reaches at odd times. I suggest you reach Mysore road satellite bus stand(Bangalore) and take bus to Mysore. You will reach Mysore in 3hrs. you can have your dinner and take the bus which will reach ooty between 4am-5am. If you are ready to shell 5k(maximum) then you can take the cab.But it is not advisable.

There are a couple of ways to reach Ooty from Bangalore:

1. Take a taxi. It will be expensive and you need to return back on the cab. They do not do one way drops to Ooty. The upside you can travel at your own pace.

2. Take a bus to Mysore. Here, you got two options:

--> Take KSRTC bus from there to Ooty. The problem with this is since, KSRTC is a standard regular sized bus it is not allowed to go through the forest and needs to circumvent it. It adds a load of time to the overall journey.

--> Take a local mini bus. Upside is goes through the forest. You save time and may be able to spot a tusker or a deer. The problem these are run by local travel agencies, they cramp as much people as possible in the buses. It can be real painful at times since, the last time I went the idiotic woman in front of me kept on puking and the stench drove me crazy. (It goes through a serpentine hilly route, people get sick at times.)

The last bus to Ooty from Mysore leaves sometime n the afternoon, around 2. After that going through the forest is not allowed. KSRTC timings you might be able to check at their website.

ksrtc has 3 buses from bangalore (SHANTHINAGAR BMTC BS) to ooty - at 9:45, 10:15 & 11:15. all are AIRAVAT (VOLVO AC) type. they all go via mysore only & take about 8-9 hrs.
other private buses might be available - best option would be to call the majestic bus stand for more details on timings.

Majestic Bus stand is closed now due to metro railway work. you can refer to Ksrtcwebsite for contact numbers/bus timings and book online tickets to ooty.
