Am Krishna. Booked the below ticket through redbus.in
While booking in website, the timing shown for this bus as starting from CMBT Chennai at 9PM , 4th Sep. And reaching Madurai at 5AM next day.
I booked ticket for boarding at Ashok pillar and drop point as Melur.
When I boarded at Ashok pillar, very few seats are filled in it. So the bus cleaner started to pitch in each and every stop on the way till perungalathur.
Starting at 9.30 from Ashok pillar and reaching perungalathur by 12.30am only.
I don't think the distance took 3hrs to reach. Later, at perungalathur, the bus driver was warned by Traffic police patrol inspector for stopping long time in traffic at Perungalathur bus stop. Paid some bribe to the police I guess. I stand back to them and saw.
Now am still traveling in the bus towards my drop point melur
The bus reached Trichy by 7AM to drop 3 travelers in trichy bus stand who boarded at Chennai I guess.
After that, bus started from Trichy at 7.30AM only. Untill that time they started to fill Trichy to Madurai seats. (madurai reaching time 5AM as per redbus.in)
At that time I went to check the situation and asked about the timing specifications. Cleaner told we have time from perungalathur only. From Chennai it was updated by redbus. It's not there schedule.
After few of us from this bus who have booked from Chennai started shouting. Then they started to move from trichy bus stand at 7.35AM
If so why should the red bus give schedule for the complete travel and its not need to list this kind of travels in a reputed ticket booking company like ibibo groups.
Am writing this email in that particular bus only. Bus no ends with "7777" - KPB Travels
This bus has not even a good seat. Half of the seats in this bus are tared..
I will definitely post about this travels in facebook and blog.
Also I want compensation. I booked this bus only because of starting and reaching time. But made it mess of all my plan.
Must need to take action against this travels and preferentially not to list this travels in redbus will help redbus reputation to be safe.
