The bus arrived an hour late to the reporting time mentioned while booking, had to wait on the busy polluted right in the middle of the road, thats where the bus stop at.
Over speed, wreckles driving.. Felt unsafe and frightened during sharp turns.
Please try your best to avoid Universal Travels. Choose this travels only if you run out of all other options. Had very bad experience with the quality of the bus and their punctuality. However, their staff behaviour is very good.
Very late. Unauthorised ticket allocations were suspected. Bus was Waitingat Thiruvanmiyur for a long time to fill seats. Blankets were not washed and ironed. I will never book again.
