For tourists who prefer to travel by bus from this station- KSRTC (Kerala State Road Transport Corporation) bus station is just across the road from this station. This bus station provides excellent connectivity to all major towns and cities around alwaye which include but not limited to Trissur, Guruvayur, North Paravur, Perumbavoor, Munnar, Muvattupuzha, Fort cochin, Ernakulam and Cochin international airport. This is by far the best rail hub for tourists planning to visit the famous hill station in kerala- Munnar. Aluva is also the closest major railway station to idukki which is home to one of the biggest arch dams in south asia
For those who prefer to travel by taxi or auto rickshaw, there are plenty of options available as well. There is a prepaid auto booth as well as a taxi stand just outside the station.
Punctuality :- 5/10
Runs Right Time/minimum delay Up to Only New Delhi/Agra/& Sometimes up to Gwalior , After Gwalior No Guarantee of Run. Gets Late due to unscheduled halts , Overtakes of Superfast Trains , time loss due to CO/TSR/PSR. Usually runs 1/2hrs late and covers all the delay in Manmad-Ahemadnagar-Daund-Pune because of Slack , ample of slack helps Jhelum to reach Pune with Minimum Delay.
always book from nzm till kcg and not till sc ..different quotas apply..pooled quota for nzm - sc leg ( very less seats) and general quota for nzm - kcg leg( obviously huge quota )...

This is very useful tip since huge difference between SC and KCG.
Other experts helped me to get tickets from MGS to SC while the BSB SC was shown as waiting list for Patne SC express!
I have started learning these rules now :-)

It is no more relevant as the SC stop has been it directly sotps at KCG without touching SC..
Many passengers use this station to board/disembark for Cochin Airport, as Aluva is a major station...
Alight here for convinient trip to eastern part of Ernakulam, like Perumbavur, Muvattupuzha and to tourist destination Munnar...
