The dynamics of two coupled antiphase driven Toda oscillators is studied. We demonstrate three different routes of transition to chaotic dynamics associated with different bifurcations of periodic and quasi-periodic regimes. As a result of these, two types of chaotic dynamics with one and two positive Lyapunov exponents are observed. We argue that the results obtained are robust as they can exist in a wide range of the system parameters.
