1) Approximately 6-7km

2) About 6 hours

3) Cost and comfort more in a private vehicle

4) None near the Mangalore Junction Railway Station. Few options near the KSRTC bus stand (on the opposite side of the road). If you are taking a bus you will need to eat wherever the bus stops. Otherwise there are a 1 or 2 vegetarian options on the way when you pass through the small towns of Sullia, Madikeri, Kushalnagar and Hunsur.

From Mangalore junction to KSRTC bus stand Auto is more readily available. However you can try to book OLA too. Ola cabs are doing fairly good here.

As for private buses, better to book online, same for KSRTC as your group is big and sometimes you might not get 10 seats available in the required bus if its a weekend. For private buses you can look at SRS or VRL.

For your group with senior citizens the best option would be tempo traveler as you can go at your pace and stop wherever you want.

Thnx @rakeshnwo,

Even I do feel that booking separate Tempo Traveller would be better option, since we have senior citizens with us.

Can I get any Manglore-Mysore Bus Operator contact details ? & How much it should cost? (I think it's @250km distance)

1) Mostly autorickshaws. Or you could call for a Ola taxi.

2) If you prebook a vehicle, you can ask to be picked up from the train station itself. But sorry, i have no contacts or cost info. If you search the Mangalore/Coorg forums you should be able to get a name or two since this question has been asked before and other forum members have shared taxi operators' numbers.

Am not too sure why you want to reach Mysuru via Mangalore. I would have thought it more convenient to go to Bengaluru and then choose any option to get to Mysuru.

In case, you still want to Mangalore, then hire a vehicle (like Tempo Traveller) to pick you up directly from the station and head straight to Mysuru. It will be far more expensive than taking a bus, but it will be more convenient. You are reaching at an odd time and most Mangalore-Mysuru buses leave at night. Besides the train will invariably reach late and you will find it difficult to get 1 Ola taxi (let alone 3 or 4) at Mangalore Junction to take you to the bus stand.
