Tirupati is a small town and hence travelling within the town is not that difficult. Also, there are easily available option which makes commuting easier. Here are the options for you to travel within Tirupati.

  • Bus

    They are frequently available and are light on your pocket. They tend to minimize your expenditure as low as INR 10 to INR 20 to reach the hilltop within an hour or so. You can either take Andhra Pradesh State Road Transport Corporation (APSRTC) buses or the private buses, the latter will cost more. Deluxe buses are also an option which don't charge anything extravagant.

  • Taxi

    This is another option to travel within the town in which you will have to rent a car and also have to bear the fuel expenses. Renting out a car for travelling to the hill and back for a day would cost you between INR 1500 to INR 2000. A few agencies from where you can rent a car are
    New Dot Travels (+91-877-6644744), Seven Hills Travels (+91-9393427555) and Goutham Travels (+91-877-2283626).

    Two well laid weather protected ghat roads exist between Tirupati and Tirumala on which Andhra Pradesh State Road Transport Corporation (APSRTC) runs a regular bus service from 3:00 am to 12:00 pm, with a frequency of just two minutes. Bus ride will cost you INR 30 per head for adults and INR 15 per head for children. You can buy the return ticket at Tirupati itself which is valid for three days and the ticket holder can board any APSRTC bus.
