Pondicherry (Pondy in short) to Chidambaram buses take less than 2 hours. So no online reservations. Rest assured there are plenty of buses from Pondy bus stand to Chidambaram. Buses that go to Karaikal also pass through Chidambaram. Enquire at the bus stand.

Any local can guide to you the bus station. You can also locate it in google maps by searching for it as "Pondicherry Bus Main Station". It is located on Maraimalai Adigal Salai, Orleanpet, Puducherry, near Hotel Mass 605005

Thank you, that was very helpful. We are trying to see how best to do the Pichavaram Mangrove boat tour from Pondicherry. If we take the bus to Chidambaram, stay overnight and then do the boat tour early in the morning (when birds are still around) that would work out best (and most economical too). Will let you know how it works out. We will be touring south India from January to March 2020.
