I am travelling to Pondicherry this week. I will be at Chennai airport till 5 am, and was under the impression that buses got Pondicherry start as early as 5 am. Would appreciate any insight on:
a. difference between CMBT and Koyambedu
b. The better station and better service provider to select between PRTC and Tamil Nadu Transport
c. whether it is necessary to book bus beforehand
I want to reach pondicherry as early as possible and I know PRTC starts only at 9.30 AM, is it worth the wait till 9.30 to take a PRTC bus? I would also like to travel by ECR route.
Alternately, if I decide to take a cab to Pondicherry, where would you recommend I take it from and what to expect for cost?
Thanks so much!
