While travelling Patna to ranchi everything was smooth but the main problem was with the AC..it was not working at all..was sweating in whole journey... Coz if you are paying you look for a comfort and that thing was not there...rest of all was above par...
Bus reached at destination by 1 and half an hour late. Bus inside should be taken care of the mosquitoes which is expected as minimal from BSTDC Bus Services.
A.c did not work at all throughout the journey. This was the worst part of the journey.They did not provide a mineral water in the bus as compared to others. Water holder in every seat attached was broken. Overall the journey experience was not good.
