The bus was reached Periyar very late around 7.00 am.on 14.12.15, whereas some other buses like KPN reaches at 6.00 am. and they are running upto Mattuthavany which was very much convenient for most of passengers.
Sound like metal scratching the road was coming throughout the journey. When enquired to driver, got no proper response.
Strictly instruct your Driver to stop the Bus last at Mattuthavany. Remember, only because of this facility some of us like me shifted from New Lucky & Vinayaka, to your Bus. Why the ticket fares are hiking very much, remember the train service are yet to start from Madurai/Palani/Pollachi to Palghat.
An excellent journey.. Always a perfect time and good behaviour of staffs. Overall a nice journey. .
