    Customer Reviews


    no water bottle , none of the ower plugin was working,none of the reading lamp was working


    Bus came around 40mins late and we were given no information about why its late. Also we didn't have any contact details or bus no. for the bus, so everyone was calling the helpline number on the ticket for the same info.


    By the time we reached the destination, it was delayed by nearly 3 hours due to road permit problem not due to traffic [which is acceptable] and detour to Madurai.


    We got late by over 2 hours. Bus kept stopping and taking breaks on the way throughout the journey.


    we boarded the bus at 10 at night reached kodaikanal at 8:30 AM. Too long journey it was


    Worst traveler, always late, JTV can change your bus type from AC sleeper to chair NON AC without any intimation. Prefer some other travel agency than JTV.


    Our bus was clean and comfortable. Driver was a bit rash. No sheets or water is given. Carry your own.


    comfortable seating however your personal phone number will be given to local tour operator and they will disturb you.


    seats were not clean ,


    Bus was not clean and very Rash driving. The blankets had stenchy smell .


    The bus from kodai to Bangalore broke down at 10:30pm - 4am. Around 10pm I had asked the conductor to stop the bus at a restaurant as my wife had to use the loo. He refused saying we can stop on the road but not at a restaurant. There were some hippie kids in the bus playing loud trance music. Some people complained to the conductor to ask to putearphobes on it the conductor failed to do so.


    The AC was not put on because there were only 5 passengers. The drive up the hills to Kodaikanal was very rough.


    Bus was too late while pickup


    Bus was too late while pickup


    Good service and quality. The only negative was the restaurant. The food quality was not good.


    Our Bus puncheured very disappointing need to wait for long time to get replacement bus However like staff behavior


    Good Driving!!! I choose KPN cos my family feels safer


    actually they should mention initially that bus wil be changed in between. at night around 4 o clock the bus was changed


    THE BUS WAS LATE BY THE 6HRS. Very poor service... The bus driver was stopping the bus anywhere. Dnt know why!!!!!!


    Loved it but wud suggest to take passengers to better restaurants next time


    Charging points and reading lamps does not work as informed by driver. Bus reached Kodaikanal around 9am


    worst experience ever.. there was charging point but no power, no blanket, no light, poor driving on ghat section


    Worst bus ever ..when spoke with the bus service help us with it they dont answer calls and the bus was about 2 hours late


    I would have given negative rating if we had choice to select for Bus Quality. Bus smelled like bathroom, started one hour late and reached destination even very late. Not at all happy.


    Very good quality bus. Super comfort. They give proper pillow and blanket. But Timing is average. We reached one hour late to Kodai. Also, staff behavious was not so good.




    worst bus service the bus got cancelled we went to tirpur and from there we went by another bus the reaches 2 hours late


    No message about bus plate number and delay No toilet on board AC too strong blowing danger of getting ill Finally I got to my destiny but I have had much better bus trips in my life.


    Comfort and good maintained bus Can improve in the aminites


    You can ask the staff on the bus to be more friendly and cooperative.


    Good Interior Keep up., Need to improve on the aminites.


    Bus was cancelled on the evening if the day of journey. There was no alternate bus arranged as well. I had to take an alternate pathetic bus. Very disappointed.


    the bus did not show up and the operators were not picking my calls


    Worst experience , wouldn't recommend this bus to anyone . Don't know whether they are travel operators or booking agents . Never ever boom this bus , had a torrid time with my family .


    driving was very rash, it was kind of roller coster ride , was not able to rest a bit in bus, no water provided (which was mentioned), driver and staff denied playing any movie (which was mentioned)


    Bus travels name was not written on the bus. It was hard for me to find the bus. Our bus reached the boarding point 2 hours late. We reached the destination almost 3.5 hours late.


    Wonderful Experience, Really enjoyed and reached destination on time and Totally Good Service


    Bus was damaged in one area,Seats were comfortable,Over all a good journey!! Keep up !!


    Very very bad,bus was late by 2 hrs, with a kid we have waited for 2 hrs. Also, we need to keep luggage on your seat,no luggage compartment or staff was available to Help us with luggage.At night full AC was there and in morning no AC was there,intentionally it was switched off, suffocating a lottt and again n again told Driver for suffocation problem,very disappointed with bus and service.It should not be listed on redbus.


    The bus makes many long unscheduled stops, which is very irritating at night / early morning. People except to sleep in a Sleeper Bus but these stoppages disturb your sleep very frequently.


    Very poor bus. Bus suspension was not at all was like a scary ride. Highly troubled travel as bus was jumping whole night.not advisable at all to travel through same bus..


    Bus was very very bad. We reached very late almost 4 hours late. Bus condition was almost on the point of breakdown.


    It was a very poor experience... bus quality an timing was pathetic


    this review is based on daily trips. always 6 hrs late. bedsheets r stinky. bus is pathetic. travelling by auto is bettr


    The bus was cancelled and KPN had a different bus drop us off at 50kms before Kodai


    Third class poorly maintained bus. A/Cs were leaking water whole night on passengers. The driver filled his cabin with passengers. Few got in the air conditioned area. Is this a government service? What is the use of paying and reserving seats? These people were shouting at the top of their voice at midnight in the bus. Such a horrific journey.


    The bus was 9hours late. I bought q bus ticket of ac sleeper and travelled in a non ac sweater bus which is not fit for regular city transport. The driver behaved bad and dropped us about 3 kms away from dropping point lying to us that it is the same point. Literally the bus took 23 hrs to reach kodaikanal from Bangalore. I am going with bigger complaints as this is fraud and cheating. The driver


    The bus is very comfortable but it was absolutely terrible coordination. The pick-up point is never mentioned properly. When it is, it's never a proper landmark - some obscure travel agency is what I'm supposed to locate. There is no proper number to contact someone either in case of an emergency. The trip back to Blr was even worse - the bus came nowhere near the mentioned pick-up point! I'm seriously looking for a Redbus replacement.


    Bus was 2 hours late for boarding and to add to our misery it was dirty and the bus broken down and we reached 5 hrs lat


    Please refund our money back. I've already raised a request for this. Mentioning a few point here again highlighting the horrible travel experience: - Took 21 hours instead of 9 hours - Horrible non AC sitting bus instead of AC sleeper bus - Bus came 2 hours late - Left us 4kms before the destination (we walked 2kms to get a taxi in rains) Money back is the least that can be done for spoiling our 2 day trip
