All the train running in these routes are all broad gauge, Its really a good experience 2 travell in chennai trains, i like to travell in beach thambaram trains, though there are train for every 10 mins the trains are crowded fully in the peak hours. To avoid the crowd in the peak hours the railways had introduced automated ticket wending machines which uses a prepaid smartcard 2 lend the tickets but i dono why most of them dont use it, The rail way stations are better than before, they are maintained well nowadays, Train travelling in chennai is a great experience, Mainly Travelling in MRTS trains, they are also called as flying trains ( Parkkum Raiyil ) . chennai rocks :)


MTC Busses - Life Line Of Chennai

MTC Bus Deport
Most of the chennai people use the public transport systems, mainly MTC (Metropolitian Transport Corporation) Busses, We can call them as the life line of chennai. They were a boon to midle class and lower class people of chennai to move from one place to another, In chennai MTC busses were mostry prefered than trains, Through MTC Bus network we can reach any part of chennai and its suburbs. More than 51.88 lakh passengers travell in more than 3262 busses running all over chennai in 627 routes. Even i use to travell in mtc buses to my college daily, Lots of improvement were made in MTC busses in recent days, the old busses were replaced by new busses which are comforable to travell. VESTIBULE, Air Buss, AC buses were introduced in the recent past and welcomed to a great externd by public. then the digital ticket issuing device were used in express and deluxe buses which were planed to be used in all kinds of busses in near future. MTC have also introduced GPS system in busses, and digital boards were placed in some bus stops which diaplys the next bus and the aprox araival time which are tracked by using GPS. The fairs in mtc busses were very nominal which can be afford my common man, More than this MTC offers Concession rates for college students, office goers etc, the school students were issued MTC passes every year which enables them to travell in MTC busses free of cost, They also issue unlimited travell tickets in day, week, and monthly basis which are boon to employees in sales, customer support etc. MTC have lots of plans ahead like prepaid smart card ticketing etc.. then coming to the important part, most of the times public forget its a service provided for us and they spoil the bus by splitin in the bus, tearing the seats, writing or drawing in the bus etc, its the duty of us to protect our property so dont damage the MTC busses.. I am travelling in MTC busses from my school days till now atlest for more than 13 years and i find one thing common mostly every day of my travell, ie the fight in the bus made by the ladies travelling in it , time the fight seems to be entertaining some times irritating, they fight with men for seats, i feel the reservation of seats in bus should be removed and it seats should be made common like many stated in India,
Chennai MTC Busses Rocks ;)

Chennai Shoping Experince - T.Nagar

Ranganathan Street - T.Nagar

Think Dresses the first thing tht ill come in to the mind of all chennai people is T.Nagar,
I had never seen such a rush and crowded place in chennai, Let me first describe the place,
T nagar Ranganathan street, Pondy Bazar and other street around it are filled with shops, Most of them are textile shops, We can find big shops like saravana stores, pothys, chennai silks, jayachandran, sri kumaran etc.. these shops are famous all over tamilnadu, with these there are other small shops and platform shops. The ranganathan street is very narrow, that too in festival season it ill be crowded like anything, once u enter the steet people ill automatically push u to the other end of the streets, the discount sales in these shops at the festival times and in adi month are very fammous, the shops in the T.Nagar were the real boon for the middle class people of the chennai. Then one small caution note for men, pls avoid going there with ur mom, sister, wife, girlfriend, etc.. cos they make u stand out and they select a single peace of cloths for hours. Ya i got the same experience when i went there with my mom an sis, they both went into ladies section of a famous shop and asked me 2 wait out, then they both came out after nearly 50 mins, i asked ma mom wht u got, she replied " The collection in this shop is not satisfactory to me , so lets see in another shop ", so mens be caution , just go with ur firnds, enjoy shopping there.
