Buses in Kumbakonam are run by the government and these are constantly available to all parts of the city from the Mofussil Bus Stand. Bus fares will normally range around Rs 3 to 8, depending on the distance covered. There are a number of private buses as well, though the tickets are about Rs 1 - 2 higher, they are more comfortable and faster.
