I had travelled on 15th of nov during cyclone time, where chennai was almost flooded.I knew that there would be difficulty to avail public transport from koyambedu to sholinganallur.Hence i booked Jabbar travels where the dropping point was suppose to be sholinganallur. But i dont know what went wrong the driver said radiator not working, the bus cannot move further, we were 5-6 people in the bus, they made us to get down from the bus somewhere near koyambedu. I suspect that this is cheap gimmick in order to save money & time.
