Chennai MTC Bus routes, timings , AC Bus timings and Fare List

I was quite amazed when I found the Chennai Metropolitan Transport Corporations Bus website with lots of useful information. This will be of great help for those looking for Bus Routes, connections, AC Bus timings, frequencies and various stagewise bus information of Chennai’s Local Bus service ie MTC.

In the stagewise route information you can select any starting (or boarding ) point and Destination and the site gives all the Buses covering the routes (even if your boarding point is in middle of a route). Also the expected time of journey, frequencies and map (under construction as of now).

MTC Official website :

MTC Bus Routes : Bus routes

MTC Bus Stages(Place wise routes) : Stage wise routes

AC Bus Timings : AC Bus Timings

    The bus timings – time table is incomplete. The new timings and the new services ( Like 18K (available) K18 (not available) ) are to be updated atleast once in a week. If this is not done it is a waste of energy for both the Public and MTC
    Thanks for speedy action

    The website looks like a typical Govt. website ,not very professionally organised and needs to be improved a lot..

    Does not give adequate information atleast on the AC buses that are plying..more routes are added in practice but not updated in site..

    I hear someone snoring..

    All bullshit design…
    It shows timing only from source to final destination, but does not include the journey time between one stop to another.

    Good Job. Something is better than nothing.
    Everyone should understand the difficulty in getting such information and provide healthy suggestions rather than “stupid” critics. This will give a room for improvement.
    Looks like those who commented uneducated barbarians. 😉

    There are no timings available for Non-AC buses.
    Only for Ac buses the timings are available in the portal, which is very worst.
    I want to know the timings overall in a day for the bus route 517k which goes from kelambakkam to pallavaram and vice versa.
    Thanks in advance
