Good one,bus was on time and no problem, staff helpful.
Punctuality was very bad 2 hours delay. Staff behavior was very bad rash driving .
Iam pretty satisfied with my travel.but the staff behaviour was rude,I made a call and they were not giving satisfactory answer
The itenery stated the bus could be tracled using gps however the bus driver kept the gps system turned off hence it caused me incoviniece in tracking the moment of the bus. Morever the bus staff couldnt speak any other language apart from their local language i.e. Tamil.
