  8. The Virajpet-Makkutta road will be open to traffic on 1/6/10. Let the Kerala RTC operate all the Super Fast/Delux Night Services to Kozhikode (Via) Iritty-Koothuparamba-Tellicherry-Vadakera. It will be a good road also. I think this will help large number of travellers to Kozhikode.

  9. The Virajpet-Makkutta road will be open to traffic from 1/6/10. Let the Kerala RTC operate all the Super Fast/Delux Night Services to Bangalore from Kozhikode (Via) Vadagera-Tellicherry–Iritty-Gonikoppal-Mysore to Bangalore. It will be a good road also. I think this will help large number of travellers to Kozhikode. If this is implemented, the hell road to Kutta-Mananthavady can be avoided. The drivers will be very happy to drive on this beautiful road.

  10. The RTC Buses of Karnataka & Kerala will benefit the passengers to a large extent by using the Bangalore to Kozhikode (Via) Iritty- Tellicherry-Vadagera route as luggage will be loaded in the RTC buses of Karnataka & Kerala. It will take 9-10 hours for this route. The day buses of RTC can be operated by using the Sulthan Battery-Gundulpet route to Bangalore & Mysore.

  11. Pl. give the bus timings from kozhikode to coimbatore… also tell whether reservations are possible..

    Suresh Babu

  12. Malabar buses operate between KKD and MDY(Mananthavady) every 30 minutes. During night time even the Bangalore bus pass through this route.

  16. After the blockage of the Gundlupet-Kozhikode during night times, the journey to Kozhikode is horrible. The Karnataka RTC Rajahamsa buses during night journey from Kozhikode take the deviation route via Mananthavady & Gonikoppa to reach Mysore and Bangalore. Additional time of 2 hours and amount is incurred. I therefore request ladies, students and family to utilize the day services to reach Bangalore & Kozhikode.

  17. pls tell me ksrtc bus timing between night 09.00 pm and 11.00 pm from kozhokode to kannur or payyannur

  24. if Koyilandi is the only municipality in Kerala having no ksrtc depot, what about Mattannur, Koothuparamba, Taliparamba, Tirur, Manjeri, kotakkal and some other municipalities. I have not seen any depot or operating cent re in those towns which are more crowded than Koyilandi.

  25. U juz check this muncipalities: No KSRTC depots or operating centres.
    (1) Eloor, Maradu , Thrikkakkara, Thripunithura, kalamassery in Ernakulam district.
    (2) Kunnamkulam & Chavakkad in thrissur district
    (3) Mattannur, koothuparamba, taliparamba in kannur district.
    (4) Tirur, manjeri & kottakkal in malappuram district.
    (5) Shornur in palakkad district.
    (6) S. paravur in kollam district.
    (7) Koyilandi in kollam district
    Total = 16 muncipalities.
    Dont think Koyilandi is the only muncipality having no depot or o/c.

  26. Please Start Kozhikkode-nilambur services via mavoor-cheruvadi-eranhimavu-areekode edavanna. this route is the shortest way to nilambur from calicut (61km) and can save around 13km compared to kkd-manjeri-nilambur.
