It was a good journey with good bus. Seats were spacious and enough room between the legs. Neat curtains n tinted glasses. 20 mnts halt for lunch. All in all very good service provided by rathiman travel. And of course excellent service by rebus.com
I was alloted the last second seat which I didnt book, we changed bus on our way, I was charged 913 and the service was not satisfactory at all. Worst experience ever
I never seen like this service ,specialy their snakes and news paper services.specially rathimeena staff behavior is fantastic in bus service.no one can give like this service
Highly recommend this bus for Chennai to Pondi. Very polite staff. Spacious seats, but too much push back, which can be annoying for the passenger behind. The 30 min stop over is not needed in a 2-3 hr journey as the travels provide water and bread/jam.
