Chennai’s city bus service, the MTC operates buses along OMR. Most MTC buses terminate at or before Sholinganallur, which roughly defines the official city limits. The buses that go beyond Sholinganallur are headed for Kelambakkam. These include 19B (from Saidapet), M5 (from Adyar), and 21H (from Broadway which is near Chennai Central railway station).
