Impressed with KTC buses. Minus the blankets which was a misgiving, rest is fine. A wifi option would take the rating to 5*
Staff response to the passenger request was not heeded. When I asked if he can inform when the Pondicherry arrives, he did not even bother to listen and just walked away. When the destination arrived, he was announcing from the drivers cabin and passengers may not hear at all. I feel, the crew should be responsible to intimate about the arrival of destination at least 10 minutes before so that the passengers can be prepared to avoid last minute rush to get down. Please understand it is a sleeper bus and do not expect to the passenger to be alert about the destination.
Bus service "Quite good and reliable". Took a break after completing 75% of journey for relieving and light refreshments, and staff were co-operative even though both of us did not have any common language to communicate. Good wishes.
they made waited for more than one hour. No ventilation in the bus. Poor water quality.
