This is the article about the the transportation system in our city. We are having one of the most largest transportation system that covers almost all the part of the state and I have to say that the city is connected to almost all the routes in Chennai and I have briefly explained the transport system in Chennai

Introduction to Chennai Transport System

I would say that Chennai has one of the most amazing transport systems in the state and is well known for the various numbers of buses to almost every part of the city. I can say that there are buses that connect to almost all the parts of the state. I should say that the buses are properly maintained and cleanly for more than twice a day and has got good drivers and conductors who do a good work to enhance the transportation in Chennai.

Bus transport in Chennai

There are a number of buses to various places of the state from Chennai and the koyambedu bus terminal is the biggest bus terminal in Chennai that was laid by the former chief minister M Karunanidhi and was opened by present Chief minister Jayalalitha in the year 2001. It has two terminals side by side where one of the terminals connects to the buses that go to local bus depots at various parts of Chennai and the other connects to the various places or districts of Tamil Nadu like Madurai, Tirchy, Salem, etc., I would say that it is one of the most important bus terminals in the nation that provides transportation facilities to most of the people in Chennai. Almost all the facilities are available in the koyambedu bus stand like bathroom facilities, recreation facilities and a tight security is also provided inside the terminal.

Train facilities in Chennai

I would say that more than the bus transport people prefer the train transport and there is a huge population travelling through the train which includes almost all the kind of people like office employees, daily laborers and students. The railways are doing well here in Chennai as it is successful than any other station in Chennai. Most of the stations also have a separate office for the police and the people who are misbehaving are taken to the courts directly from here. I would say that there are many numbers of trains that are traveling from and to Chennai. The Railway transport system covers almost all the part of the state and is also extended outside the state by connecting to almost all the states of the country. There are various types of trains that cover the distance within the state and outside the state and they are as follows.

Metro Trains in Chennai

These are trains that are in process and are planned to be completed in the year 2014. It connects the most important sections of the country which includes places like Chennai Koyambedu, Vadapalani etc., up to velachery but was planned to extend even till St. Mount station. I would say that it would be a best alternative to the people as the region are always with huge traffic and sometimes it takes more than 40 minutes to reach vadapalani from Koyambedu and I have faced such situations whenever I go to the Vijaya hospital situated there in Vadapalani.

Electric trains in Chennai

There are various electrical trains that connect between various parts of the city and the most importantly,
Chennai Central - Perumbur – Villivakkam – Ambattur – Avadi – Thiruvallur – Arakkonam – Thiruttani
Chennai Central – Valaja Nagar – Ponneri – Kavarapettai – Gummidipoondi
Chennai Beach – Park station – Mambalam – Chrompet – Tambaram
Chennai Beach – Perumbur – Villivakkam – Ambattur – Avadi
Chennai Beach – Park Mount – Chepauk – Mylapore – Velachery
Like these the trains connect almost all the part of the city with its wide number of trains and this is one of the main reasons why the transport system is the best in the city.

Trains connecting to other states of the country

There are various trains that connect to other states of the country like New Delhi, Assam, Hyderabad, Kerala, Thirupathi etc., which leaves from the Chennai Central terminal and the trains for various places like Madurai, Thiruchy, and other southern regions start from the Chennai egmore terminal which would also be well maintained with almost all the facilities and the two stations Chennai Central and Chennai Egmore can b connected by the Electric train from each to Tambaram.

Alternative sources of Transport in Chennai, Tamilnadu

Apart from these sources there are many other sources of transportation like Auto, Vans and cars that are used for the travelling purpose and the roads too accompany the use of the vehicles as studies above.

By this I would say that the Chennai is one of the most important cities which connects to almost all the part of the state and is very popular and it is the place where there are many facilities available and hence there are lot of tourists who tend to visit Chennai and its surroundings.
