      Customer Reviews


      In one line- Pathetic, unprofessional, irresponsible and money minded. Coming to the details- 1. Bus was supposed to arrive at the pickup point 7pm and it arrived at around 8:15pm. We(group of ~10 people) were standing in middle of nowhere waiting for the bus. At kodaikanal, its all dark and empty post 7pm. We were given no information that why the bus is late, when it will come or what are the bus details. 2. After starting an hour late, they were making stop in between to pickup people to fill up empty spaces like its some public city transport. 3. They didn't even stopped the bus for dinner anywhere, I get it that they were delayed, but why stop for picking up extra people then. They should have at least told us about. At one of the stop when I asked about the dinner, I was told after half an hour, but they never stopped. I heard same experiences later from other passengers. 4. By the morning(around 5am), We were all hungry and thirsty thinking of having good breakfast as the arrival time was around 5-6am. We came to know that we are no where near Bangalore. We still have 3-4 hours to reach Bangalore. 5. As we reached attibele around 7:30am, the bus suddenly stopped and we were told to shift to new bus. This they did as if we are in middle of Bangalore and its the last stop. 6. The new bus to which we moved was an AC seater, but we just wanted to reach home and office after that. 7. Just after 15mins this bus stopped again at some kind of RTO office for permit check. Guess what, this bus didnt had the permit to get inside Bangalore. This too we came to know after waiting in that bus for half an hour at least. 8. We were told again to change the bus. So everyone started following the bus guy and we were made to complete last 30 kms in a public non-ac bus standing. That too, we had to pay our own fare. We reached at around 9:30am. I could write for many more things which went wrong. Would never advise anyone to use JTV


      The bus journey was hassle-free and courteous staff. But they forgot to wake me up for dinner; may be I have over-slept after tiring backpacking trip.


      The journey was good. Started on time and reached in good time. The bus was comfortable. Only point that could be better is to stop at a good place for dinner with proper toilets.


      It was nice service and well maintained bus. But water bottle was not available as promised while booking and reading light was not working. Hopefully it be worked upon to improve service


      water bottles were not provided as promised. charging points did not work!!


      Informed that the pickup will be at 7 pm at Oothu junction, but bus did not turn up till 8.54 pm. When called after 7.30 pm, they still maintained the same answer that the bus will reach in few minutes. Our request to provide the conductor phone number was not entertained.


      Very Punctual and they stopped at quite good place for a break (Dinner break and toilet break). Also in the morning the conductor and the driver were politely guiding each passenger. Overall great experience.


      Preferred this bus over KPN. They don't play loud, jarring music. Berths are clean and comfortable. Bus left on time and arrived ahead of schedule.


      no drinking water was provided as mentioned in amenities


      While booking my ticket on RedBus, Sam's Tourist seemed to indicate offering of water from Kodaikanal to Bangalore, and based on that we had not taken any water on the trip. However, after boarding, we are informed that they do not offer any water on their trip from Kodaikanal and it is only the trip from Bangalore to Kodaikanal. Could RedBus please request Sam's Tourist to update the facilities provided section that they show the customer whilst booking.


      They showed us real hell. No response from the JTV after booking ticket and very irresponsible behaviour with 0 customer service.


      Bus was clean and comfortable. It reached destination on time.


      1.Water bottle was not provided. 2.sheets were visibly unclean - dirt, spills etc. 3. Somebody was smoking inside the bus the whole way back! 4. On the downhill drive down nobody in the staff came to the back to check if everything is okay .. if they had done this they would have smelled the tobacco/hasheesh smoke on the bus. Also this check up should be necessary to ensure the safety of female passengers travelling alone. Just a walk through the aisle would suffice. Request you to look in to this procedure of regular checking of the bus. 5. Aside from this your staff was very courteous especially the bus driver and one attendant. There was a third attendant whose face and look made me feel unsafe. All in all my trip up from Bangalore to kodaikanal I will give 5 stars but the return only 3 stars. This is because of the reasons listed above. I am confident that you will work to make things better and safer! Great bus! Thank you!


      AC didn't work at all. Had to open the windows with great difficulty at night.


      rude and uunprofessional staff


      very good journey, most important thing is this is a direct bus, no change of bus in between


      You need to check if someone who is coming in bus is druck , 3 hours who are be hand our seat are drunk and it was difficult situation since I had my family with kids


      Pathetic....Please don't travel in S.R.S Travels....Rash Driving....Staff and Driver Behavior very very BAD.....Not safe to travel, specially when you are with your family....A Big Nooooooo to S.R.S Travels.....


      expensive, probably cause it was new years. Very punctual and the bus quality was also good.


      Very good Driver felt very secure Kudos to Driver sorry i dont remember his name??


      Punctual, Neatly maintained bus, really liked their service but suggest driver to take to better restaurant for dinner


      Good professionalism from the Management and from the Driver.


      The bus made a 30 minute midnight stop (12:15 am) to load cargo on its roof. None of us could sleep because of all the commotion.


      Bus sitting need to improve and also some sitting foot support not working . TV also not functioning


      Bus Punctuality was very good. Started at sharp 7. Staff behavior was also good. Will definitely recommend this bus for others


      horrible journey. bus was in bad condition


      Very happy. Please provide a bottle of water for the journey.


      In general good trip. Pain points: * no toilet on board (in other countries standard!) * AC was blowing to strong (danger of illness)


      Need service improvement. NO proper timing, NO aminities., :(


      a great experience for the past two trips. they are smashing the competition, and I use the Kodi-Blre route often.


      Driving is very rough. so many places they hold minimum 20 minutes each. staffs doesn't know how to speak to passengers.


      Well maintained. Had doubts before journey about the bus, but it was pleasent journey.


      Driving seemed rash and uncomfortable. We didn't get proper sleep even though it was a sleeper bus.


      the bus never turned up every schedule was messed up due to this. bad experience.




      Compared to rate, bus quality was so poor.And we booked on NON AC they cancelled that trip and adjusted us in AC.


      The driving was rash, ac not working properly, the seater costs more than a semi sleeper, but has No Leg Space At All. Driver doesn't know much of bumpers or speed breakers, jumos on all of them.


      Bus left on time, and reached Bangalore before time. Seats were comfortable.


      driving was very rash, it was kind of roller coster ride , was not able to rest a bit in bus, no water provided (which was mentioned), driver and staff denied playing any movie (which was mentioned)


      The bus was over 3 hours coming into Bangalore and then broke down near electronic city. The staff was rude and the temperature was too cold.


      Horrible driving through the ghats.


      i hv nevr faced such bad exprience in my till life such worst exprience the bus which i booked it wz nt d same


      no clarity on bus arrival and bus no


      Two Different buses clubbed by two Operators. Long waiting Time to manage the same seat number conflict.


      Ac wasn't switched on the entire journey


      Bus was well maintained and clean but the support staff was not very prompt and were not that helpful either


      The bus,( Thirumalaiya travels) did not come on time. The staff made us run from one to another bus..and still we got no details. The helpline numbers didn't answered.. and when they did, all they did was scream at us. The seats we got were in really bad condition. Unwashed seats with crumbs on them. To top all this bus broke down before reaching the destination.


      Very poor bus quality.scary ride and difficult to travel with family in bumpy bus as suspension of bus was very poor.


      it's not worth giving 1700 per ride. . too worse. . seat quality is bad. too much vibration in bus.


      Excuse bus broke down. Put us on another bus then again changed the bus. Had to fight with manager and driver for seats.
