OLA has opened a counter to book cabs and facilitate for easy commute from the sation.
Apart from the same, there is a BMTC Bus stop which provides direct services to YPR(yaswantpur), which is an hour journey.
one can take metro from Mysore Road station instead of taking BMTC to YPR
How to board Metro as trains doesn't stop close to railway station? Only option is to go all the way upto SBC.
yeah hopefully soon Purple line will be extended to Kengeri
Kengeri Railway Station to Yesvantpur Junction bus route number - 401M,401MN,401L,401MC,401K
Want to travel around Bengaluru for the least amount of money?Just buy a BMTC daily bus pass and one can travel the whole day in any BMTC bus from/to anywhere within Bengaluru.BMTC bus pass charge- Non A/C-₹70,A/C-₹140.Note - A/C bus passes Will not be allowed in Vayu Vajra(airport) buses,you will however get a discount on the ticket if you have A/C bus pass.BMTC bus pass is issued at major bus stands and inside all the buses(A/C bus passes will be issued only inside A/C buses).ID card is mandatory or bus pass is invalid
With an AC bus pass can we also travel in Non-AC buses? Seems obvious but, good to know the rule
Yes A/C pass is valid in all buses(including non A/C) except airport
where do they sell such tickets ?
i have clearly mentioned in the tip
The A.C.Pass will be sold by the A.C.Bus Conductor and ordinary bus pass (non AC) will be sold by the conductor of non AC buses and also at some TTMCs. Sometimes, you may not get the non AC bus pass after their first shift is over i.e., in the afternoon, as many conductors will not carry these passes in the afternoon as their sales will be minimal. No ID is required now a days to obtain the non AC pass.
I imagine Kempe Gowda bus point a major stand... but am not sure which counter / platform it is sold. Hence this doubt. Please clarify.
I donot know about Kempegowda Bus Stand. But I am told they will be sold at Banashankari TTMC. However, I have seen many times while coming out of the KSR SBC Railway Station (at the end of the underpass and entrance to BMTC Bus Stand) two BMTC staff in uniform will be seen selling these passes in the morning hours as many railway commuters coming out of the station will buy the pass for their all day travel in BMTC bus. But I think they sell only non AC passes.
This is good information to get the Passes
just ask any bus conductor standing in the bus stand they will give you the bus pass immediately on payment
One more Beauty of Bengaluru is if you lost anywhere in any part of city just catch Kempegowda Bus stand/Majestic Bus you will straight come to the place from where u can go to KSR/SBC railway station/Main Bus stand/Kempegowda Metro station too. So Mostly Majestic/Kempegowda Bus stop will be focal point to new comers.
Don't have to look for a particular platform / counter where these passes are sold - Just get into any A/C / Non-A/c bus for getting the respective passes and ask the bus conductor for the pass. You will get one easily. This is specially during morning hours. Post 12 noon, some conductors may not have daily passes with them. The reason is obvious.
Sir the ID card is mandatory just traveled today with day pass the flying squad of BMTC asked for ID card at Majestic and many of guys without ID card were fined
Oh, OK. I am sorry for the wrong information. But I am told by many conductors (I am a frequent BMTC traveller as I donot have any vehicle with me and buy monthly non AC bus pass for Senior Citizens costing Rs.945/- , hence I donot know about daily pass) that it is not mandatory now a days. Earlier, it was compulsory, as many people purchasing these passes used to sell them for Rs.15 or 20 in the evening and many who used to buy them especially workers from outside the state were the victims. Also, if you hold monthly non AC bus pass (either Senior or non Senior) and wants to travel in AC bus from one end to another (say from Banashankari to Hebbal or ITPL you will get concession in the fare which is around Rs.37 or 38 which otherwise would have been

Travelling from SBC (Bangalore) falls in RL (Remote Location) quota. But if you book it from KGI (Kengeri) it would be GN quota. Njoy confirmed tickets. And you can board at SBC since they are only 12 kms apart.
Plus,TTEs board at SBC only. General coaches will be full from MYS though,nay Chamrajanagar
even though KGI is GN quota it has only 2.5 coaches under GN quota and SBC being in RL has 4 coaches. Half coach is for HO and tatkal. Cancellation from Bangalore are more hence chances of confirming is more in RLWL in this particular train
Also extra coach is generally attached to this train (S7) at Bangalore only and forms part of Bangalore quota only- also more chances of cancellation are from Bangalore- so if availability is there book from KGI- or else from SBC only
Now Change of Boarding Station is allowed since 1st October 2013.
How does this affect your suggestion.
you can change the boarding point at the PRS as well, if you didn't do at the time of booking.
cancellations are very less here sir. This is the only decent night train between SBC and TPTY
