Even though the bus was more than an hour late, it managed to get us to the destination with only a 25 minutes delay. Bus quality was great. In all, a quality ride.
STC did not operate their bus. An old bus of some other operator with unkept interiors used. One hour delay in arriving and more than 3 hours delay in reaching destination . Rip off at rs 1400
There were mosquitoes in the Bus... other than that it was good...
There was double booking for 2 out of the 3 seats which I booked. It caused a lot of inconvenience as we had to give up those 2 seats to a lady and her kids and move from one seat to another.
