I booked in a sleeper expecting a pleasant journey. the reporting time was 1015 PM. I reached at 10. The bus was parked at the POC. On inquiring, I was told that the bus would only start by 1130. Regarding the timing, I was told that the Website people- here referring to RedBus simply bring forward for some purposes. This is pathetic!!! They were waiting for some other passengers to arrive in a different bus and switch bus. I arrived three hours late. Hats off!!!
Bus reported in chandranagar by more than 1 hrs late,so that I could able to plan my next day schedule
First of all...It has supposed to reach my place at 09.30 pm and it reached at 12night and no one bother to inform. The bus was stinking. it had reached at 10:30morning. and that too not in Koyembedu station. before to that their office. Made us to walk 1 km to reach koyembedu. I will never travel sona again in my life.....
Bus was late by 1 hr 15 minutes. I was waiting in the main road by standing. There is no place for sitting and the local office person gave driver number and asked to wait and take bus. I realized that if train/flight is late, we get some place to sit. There was noise and vibration in the cabin. This may be due to rear engine in Merz. Benz. I rate this as very poor service.
