It was really horrible they took more 12 hrs from Chennai to tirunelveli
That bus time was 8 pm...but they came at 9.50... First they were picked up all passengers at CMBT then they dropped Near to metro station... Passengers were wait more than 2 hours for another bus... Pls dont add like this travels into redbus web
Boarded at Perungalathur. Boarding point printed in the ticket was near akaash hotel. But, boarded nearer to Kamarajar statue as per the directions of some travel agent claiming that they were running office for Tuppusultan travels. Unnecessary waiting for about 30 minutes for me and the operator.
Bus was not clean .when i returned back there was a delay of 2.30 minutes which is not acceptable as I clearly booked the tickets believing their arrival time plus half hour not 3 hours.The bed linen were smelly as well as used coke bootles dust and paper were in the bed .in all I was not happy as i expected a better service .when the bus could have stopped minimally at night for no reason stopped at 4 places. as well as crawling at night when not much traffic at middle of night but trying to pick up after 6 am .in all there is no time consciousness. I am using SRM regularly and I may have to change
