Bus is surrounded with mosquitoes and not clean. with dust. not preferred


Bus takes more time to reach kumbakonam


Need more buses in this route


the driver was so rude and did not stop in the right stop


bus is taking too much time to reach destination place.


The travelling time was alright with the time specified by operator.Reclining seats and cleanliness needs improvements.


travelling time is upto 8hours intead of reaching within 5.30hours....worst


Satisified with the travel and service as always. Single sleeper seat in Sleeper coaches can be bit broader as it is little comfortable.


Push back didn't work . Please check the seats before the bus starts. Can't sit such a long time without a push back


Bus quality is good..punctual..afforadable ticket price...overall good


Try to pick up on time


we need Good Hotels for during in between stop for Tea break


No Ticket of hard copy given and staff is not friendly and not behaved gently.Also not answered properly


bedspread should be clean and change daily trip


Another passenger by mistake took my shoulder bag and got down. Driver and conductor were kind enough to turn around the vehicle and get me my bag back.


Its not a Volvo bus actually,body build by Prakash coach Banglore like Volvo,felt vibration s not comfortable at all,driver switched off AC .Not upto expectations, please don't show as a Volvo bus while booking.its cheating


I felt good about the bus and Staffs. When I faced a problem in pushing the seat back, i got an alternative seat for the same. Of course since it is available i coould get one. otherwise i would have had to travel sleeplessness because of non functioning of pushback seat. Most importantly, there were two people started smocking inside the bus. Even though it was asked by Staffs not to smoke they were not ready to listen and they were rude to staffs. I feel the staffs are not well equipped to handle such customers.


Something wrong with seats push back inclination angle. It was not comfortable.


Very late but pick up the time. Anyhow that is not good always 1hr to 1.30hr late


The bus was suppose to be at Tambaram at 10:05 pm but they came only at 11:05 pm. Had to stand opp. to Hindu Mission Hospital for one hour in the night.


The driver stopped in a worst hotel in the middle of night. Also the windows are not closing properly and we got very cold.


bus was punctual well maintained and reached in time


Nice and comfortable journey. But only thing the time we reached was with one hour delay.


Didnt come to the designated location. Ac was not working. Travel time was longer than usual.


windows were not working in the bus and leg is getting pain while sitting on the seat.


Nice journey... very good support... simply superb...


bus was late by 90 minutes


If delayed then please inform us when we contact you.


One way it is punctual. One way, I was informed about the delay as soon as I ask the same.


great and humble response from staffs....


It's an AC bus and when it rained outside, it rained inside too... I booked seat number 4... and got drenched and had to go back and stand for the last two hours..


Please add GPS tracking so that customers no longer need to call the staff to check current location of the bus


There are no aminities available as listed. Very bad , no charging point, no reading lights nothing.!


a very plesant and enjoyable journey without any difficulty in travel journey


please don't cheat customer. boarding time 23:20 at perungulathur,but within an hour they have changed to oorapaakam.bus reached at morning 2:00am.


I was travelled on 13 Jan 2017. A great comfortable journey.


Please keep proper timing. Its very difficult from passenger.


Bus timing is 10.30 pm. But started around 11.30pm. This is also acceptable considering the festival season but after departure bus was stopped in a petrol bunk for around 1hour which is worst. They swapped the bus also for some reason and the alternative bus is not of good quality.


Very worst travel in my lifetime. Travelled for more than 12 hours from chennai to kumbakonam. There was an issue with rto due to highest fare received. They didn't refund also. No coordination between staffs and passengers. No proper pick up. Waited up in so many places and they changed passengers bus numbers so many times. Its been so hectic for everyone. Staff said he have called me but there was a mismatch between the num which i gave and he had. ??


Bus quality is good but time management is average...


not good very bad timeing


Return kumbakonam bus was delayed by half an hour. All of us, about 20 passengers, were standing on road. Lot of mosquito bytes and no clue where is the exact location of bus. Please ask them to have a office or place for passengers to wait and be on time


The bus was too jerky. Quite costly when compared with other buses plying on the same route. Staff were ok. Was late by more than half an hour.


Pls inform the passengers right time of arraival. At the time of booking it is ok to maintain a particular time but while starting you could inform the correct time as no bus could reach tambaram in half an hour from koyambedu. Pls dont make passengers to wait for 1-1/2 hrs


Very nice driver and cleaner


The cleanliness has to be improved a lot particularly Blankets


poor quality, worst experience


Reckless driving by the driver to make up for time lost in the toll plazas


seats are too bad, too fast, no safely doors attached. no permit on regular route


seats are too bad on 2+2 small size bus. travelling hours normal days 4 hours ( cmbt to perungalathur ) 6 hours ( Kmu )
