Timing is very worst
Bus Quality & Staff behavior: There was some problem with the AC compressor, which was admitted by the bus driver. Despite that the fan setting was left at the lowest. It was changed only after arguing with the driver for a few minutes. The change did not help much and the driver ended the conversation off by saying something like "if you still want the bus to get cooler I should only start driving from the foothills of himalayas" in a sarcastic tone. Being an AC bus we couldnt even open the windows, so until the sun went down we had to continue the journey inside a hot oven. Punctuality: As per schedule the bus was supposed to reach at 8 30 PM at the destination. It arrived at 11 PM, which left some of the passengers including me in a difficult situation as we had to take another bus to reach our homes, which werent available during that time of the night.
Staff behaviour Good,But time taken and bus quality is low.
