Bus condition is good but there is no control for the window side AC blower, Even the driver stops the AC in a periodic time the chillness is more in the window seat gives iritavtive feeling also the travel time is too high
bus was very late ..waited nearly 2 hours..and reached destination very late.
The journey was fine. But there were no proper response from drivers. Drivers do not show any humanity on passengers. Details of bus like bus number, person to contact was not provided for boarding buses. It made me reach every SRM Transport bus to check whether it reaches my destination. On a scale of 5 i would suggest only 2
SRM transport never gives driver number. they maintain zero punctuality.
