It turned to be a worst day for me ... I was about to attend an funeral on October 18th in Erode. Boarding pass : 5897B4 bus number : PY 01BZ 9399... I reached boarding point in Perungalathur by 10:30 PM and I was said the bus will come only by 11:45 PM, when my mticket says departure time is 11:30... waited and waited there in front of KPN office with 9 months baby in hand. Got a call by 12:00 PM saying Bus has been changed to 7925 and asked to board on bus which is standing 150 mtrs away from KPN office. ok ! took all my luggage and boarded bus by 12:15 PM.. Bus started only by 01:00 AM for which i had to call KPN office and shoutt.. Final mess happened when I noticed the bus didnt went to erode at all ... and were 70 kms away near avinashi.. ( real pain was : during my conversation with driver he asked : "how would I know you have to get down in Erode" felt like shitted - did pay 1300 for this !! ) after quarrel with driver got down on a small bus stand with 9 months baby & wife. I took local bus to and reached Erode after 1.5 hrs of travel (i.e October 18th 10:00 ).. I was about to attend an funeral but due to this all shit by KPN felt like as if I had a funeral day... these guys dont know what is punctuality and service. Bus I traveled was like a shareauto with AC.. please I expect somebody from KPN to give me a call like have a conversation.. Note : since this is a public forum, i thought to avoid profanity.. otherwise $%##%^%$
please cancel the bus (psm travels) from redbus.in because in my travel carrier this is the very worst travel i think.. pls dont provide this type of bus.. the drive and conductor behavior was very very worst..
We travelled in the last two seats of the lower berth. The noise and vibrations were pretty bad for a multi axle Mercedes bus and the A/C was not sufficient enough to keep the cool. This was a day travel from Chennai to Erode. The staff said the A/C throw at the last seats would usually be pretty slow and nothing can be done about it. Better avoid the last seats.
Worst bus ever seen. Its didnt arrive to the location which I booked instead it came to different place and asked me to come at midnight 11.30
