Muvattupuzha is a prominent old town in the midlands directly to the east of Kochi. It is situated at around 40 km from downtown Kochi. The town is a growing urban centre in central Kerala and also an aspiring new district headquarter. Muvattupuzha KSRTC depot is located on MC Road towards south of the town.
KSRTC operates few long distance services and mostly caters to the Ernakulam to Thodupuzha route. Private bus services are available to major towns in the Ernakulam district as well as Kottayam and Idukki districts. Frequent buses are available to neighbouring towns like Ernakulam, Kakkanad, Aluva, Wellington Island, Kothamangalam, Piravom, Koothattukulam, Perumbavoor, Pattimattom and Thodupuzha.
Kaloor is a downtown region in the city of Kochi, in the state of Kerala, India. It is just 2 km from the Ernakulam North Railway Station.
