On that day bus reported Pondicherry 7.10 pm and reached karaikkal 10.15 pm in their own petrol bunk. They filled around 300 litres diesel and it takes time 1.30 hrs. For this delay their driver driving very rashly. Public feel very unsafe. Kindly take action.
they take you in a non a/c bus to karaikal and you need to change buses there. Easily 2-3 hours of extra travel time here. Plus the second bus reached tirunelveli at 8.30 am, whereas the promised time of arrival was 3.30 am. Five hours late is simply not acceptable. And the staff behave really rude. Please avoid universal travels at all costs
Now a days kallada bus service is very bad they didnt maintain punctuality and also their bus is going worse note a days. Very bad condition
the bus is not a direct bus. changeover at karaikal. the bus scheduled to reach tirunelveli by 2.40 am . But it reached at 6 am. Pondy 6pm. Karaikkal reach at 10 pm. Karaikkal change over bus. 10.30 left karaikkal and reached Tirunelveli by 6 am. If i would have taken a bus from Pondy at 10 pm i could have reached tirunelvali by 5 am. Sheer non sense that red bus is displaying this particular service and cheating public.
