Extremely bad bad.. Bus did not arrive scheduled time.. It was 2 hours delay
Overall the journey is good. The only concern is the travels confused me the boarding point location and the sms which i got after reservation also confused me about the boarding point location.
Though redbus shows drop point as Periyar Bus stand, it dropped us at Mapalayam! A bit discomfort
KPN is worst travels which i never travelled. Time and punctuality is very worst, they is no proper information and did nt call in a time. Bus parked in next road of the KPN office and did nt intimate me. Especially the Drivers is very rogue fellows , waste fellows. In the KPN office the people who sitting is purely waste of guys. They are wasting other lifes. Rubbish KPN
