While journey was excellent. Bus was punctual. Very comfortable seating. Reached destination on time
Bus maintainence was very bad and driving was very rash as well.
Bus leaking inside. Not worth the money paid for a Volvo A/C Multi Axle. SETC much better.
Worst bus. First time seeing a volvo multi axle bus leaking inside in rain. I booked seat no.21W. Screen and blanket totally drenched. When reported to attender, he simply asks to switch seat and giving the blanket he used. Worst staff behaviour.
