started at right time but reached very later
The Driver asked why are bringing luggage when youre traveling single, i dont think that they have any regulation for the single to travel without luggage. he is not supposed to question me.
I travelled with my daughter. We waited for almost 1 hr at 11.00 pm. Bus stopped at lot of places to fill up the seats and 5-6 people were standing and it was very difficult for ladies to travel in the bus. Very slow driving reached very late. Had to take permission from office. Dont take this bus at all. They dont care about the passengers. Worst experience.
As indicated by Red Bus, the bus did not drop me in Egmore, but dropped in Koyembedu. The only reason for booking this bus is to get dropped at Egmore, but that did not happen.
