The worst bus line Ive ever been on. And it took almost double the time to get to my destination. I definitely do not recommend anyone to take this bus.just leaves you frustrated for no good reasons.
They call me and said Bus will start 30 mins ahead so I reached Perungalathur 7.45 and repoted. But Bus arrived at 10.30. They didnt provide a bed sheet. Around 2 am the front glass has broken. Around 11 am I reached Nagercoil. Due to this delay I couldnt attend very important function in family. That created lots of problem in my personal life.
