1)There were no contact details provided in the tickets. I have to ask the red bus support desk to get their contact numbers. 2)I didnt receive any call form the bus operator, when I called them they are not answering the call. Its put me on difficult situation whether the bus will come or not. 3)Bus was 45 minutes late. 4)They allocated my seat to some one ( unreserved people ) and informed me to sit on different seat which is free then what is the need of booking? The only postivie feed back is seats are good.
Bus was not on time (2 hrs late) & rain water leaking all over the bus...very bad experience with Sri krishna travels.
My journey was totally for 12 hrs and for 6hrs I have travelled without ac. On reporting to staff regarding ac complaint they simply said "AC is not working". Without AC travelling in sleeper bus was like being put in an oven. Myself I rate LEEYA travels zero.
Departed 1 hr late & arrived 2.5hr late. When I enquired about possible time of arrival, they given complete false details hence ended up spending addition 1000 INR in arrival point to the taxi
