A bus with broken glass ! We had to travel in the same bus from chidambaram to chennai without mirror. Front full mirror is broken. 11.50 was boarding time and we started from chidambaram by 2.45 which I the worst ever in my travel experience
The bus timing was about 11.45 pm. But the bus came only at 2.00 AM without front glass. The driver wore a helmet and drove the bus. We were compelled to travel bus by the Universal agent. Very very very (you can add any number of verys) worst service.
