Posted this in the TN section. Not sure if this belongs here?! Need info on Ooty
-----------------------
Planned a trip to Bangalore - Ooty. Booked tickets and will be landing at Bangalore on the 1 Oct.

Thinking of Volvo bus - overnight travel to Ooty. Return back on 5 Oct.

Will be traveling with 2 kids - 11 & 7.

At present thinking of the following:

Bangalore-Ooty : Volvo overnight

Ooty-Bangalore: Day - Volvo - on 5 Oct (is there a problem of road-sickness?)

Pl. also suggest better bus services. I need to board nearest point from "Bellandur Junction on the Sarjapur Outer Ring Road"

I believe that KSRTC picks-up & drops only at Majestic which is quite far from the Bellandur junction.

Pl. help!

KSRTC Airavat/Rajahamsa starts from BMTC Shanti Nagar Terminal, of course which is a little far from Bellandur. I am not sure if private buses have boarding points on Outer Ring Road. AFAIK, they are based out of Madiwala/Kalasipalayam.
Not all those who wander are lost
