The most horrible experience and a huge let down.tge bus was to leave at 5.20pm from pondicherry which only showed up at 7.45pm without any prior information.the two numbers were unanswered. We reached Chen nail in the night at 11 and hence missing our flight for the onward journey.
The original BUS time was 9:45 AM. But it came at 11:45 AM.I had to wait for more than 2 hrs near the corporation bank. Quality was awful.
No space provided for the medium sized luggage.Have to carry the luggage between our legs that was so irritating and uncomfortable.
Red bus should take care to correct the timing, The bus reaches pondicherry at 6.45 pm and not at 5.00 pm as advertised. this causes great inconvenience to passengers who have to stand in the road side for roughly 2 and a 1/2 hours. I think it is more the fault of redbus rather than that of Universal travels because if one books directly they say the scheduled time is 6.30 pm.
