I've travelled to Munnar in buses several times. At my young age, I used to travel by private buses for its speed and availability. Private buses usually drive much faster than KSRTC buses. I used to enjoy the speed but not anymore. For safety concerns, I prefer KSRTC buses where drivers are not in a hurry since their schedules allow them plenty of time to reach the destination.

I find from web site of KURTC that low floor AC bus from ernakulam to Munnar starts at 1030 AM. whereas KURTC trip code says 0900 EKMMNR.( i presume the 0900 is the starting time)
Your article also says the starting time as 9 AM & reaching at 2 PM.
Can you please clarify.
Kindly also let me know the starting point of this bus. Is it KSRTC bus stand or Vyttilla.

Like wise return bus from munnar seems to be at 1630. Is it this the correct time OR is it earlier than this.
