maintaining promised run time is important for long distance travel. It was quite disappointing with Kallada bus journey from Kalpetta to Hyderabad on 19/04/2015. The bus which left kalpetta at 3.30 pm, could leave banglore only at 12am. The bus must leave Banglore before 10.30 pm to make it in time in Hyderabad. they started behaving like passenger trains with too much delays and reaching Hyderabad by 7.30 am after considerable rash driving and over speeding.
