I have booked first time from red bus and felt very bad. Reason I have booked ticket to Ananthpur from Bangalore (gee pee travel) At pick up point they told me that my seat is booked for other passenger and they told they will arrange other bus. I bokked central centre in gee pee travel,but I got last seat in other travel bus. Also driver was arrogant.
