Bus came around 30 minutes late to the pick point. Seats were very conjusted. Very hard to manage with long legs. We were not able to recline our seats also. No wifi in the bus. Two of the TV screens were not working. Only the driver side screen was working which was hardly possible for back seaters. Attendant hardly bothered when we asked him something. Two seats on the front row were vacant for which I requested the attendant as my wife had chances of vomitting in the back seat, but he said it was booked. Later he sold the same in cash to someone else & that too in a much lesser rate than we paid for our seats.
Please add facility to see drop points as well. It was very inconvinient for me to go to my residence at 1 AM from a far location.
