An important connection between Chennai and Puducherry as an AC service. Also reasonable timing mid afternoon so as to reach Pud cherry by evening time. The bus quality, punctuality and reaching the Universel bus company were terrible disappointments. The AC was poor and particularly when travelling at 3pm in the afternoon. I would not recommend this bus service to others wanting to travel from Chennai to Puducherry. BK Raman
The contact number provided by redBus was wrong. The bus didnt turn up even after 1 hour from the scheduled time. So, I was left with no option but to take another bus because I had to be at my destination on time.
I dont understand why it took them 5 hours to reach in abus like that.
We booked an a/c bus but then the bus neither had a/c nor did it have a window
