Never Travel with this bus operator.
They show wrong timing and charge you high.
My experience with Ankita Paribahan is very bad. My bus was supposed to depart from Mandarmani at 10am on 8-May-2016. The bus actually reached at 11:40 at Mandarmani.
Problem with this bus operator:-
1) They listed absolutely wrong timing in RedBus site.
We had co-passengers with us on the same bus who booked tickets from RedBus, Friends Travels, for the 10:50 am bus.
Ankita Paribahan is a cheater, who listed the 10:50am bus as 10am bus. And the bus reacted at Mandarmani bus stop at 11:40am.
I personally enquired from police and other travel agencies there,and no traffic delay was there at that time. Hence no chance of bus got delayed due to traffic.
I lost personal business due to this extreme delay.
The 10am bus of Ankita Paribahan is the same bus as 10:50 bus of Friends Travels.
Co-passenger who booked for 10:50am bus from Friends Travels paid 300 Rs for a ticket. Whereas I was assigned same bus for 350Rs. I booked for 10am bus of Ankita Paribahan.
P.S:- in this route, many bus operators share the same bus for their business.
As I wanted to come back to Kolkata early , so I booked early bus. And at the end I found bus provider fooled me. They gave the bus which is scheduled for 1hr later with other bus operators. And had to pay 50rs extra per ticket for getting fooled.
3) No Guarantee you will get your booked seat:-
I booked seat no 29,30 from RedBus online app. When I boarded the bus, they asked me to take seat no 9,10 forcefully.
Very unprofessional behavior.
4) Bad Bus:-
Very small seats. Not good for fat people.
Very small leg spaces. Seats are not comfortable. Have BUGS in the couch.
AC adjustment panel is there above the seat, still the asile seat person don't get the AC pointed at them.
I feel bus rates are over priced from my experience.
I am a travel freak guy. And I NEVER RECOMMEND this bus operator to anyone.
