          Customer Reviews


          poor staff communication. very bad service!!


          Very worst experience.Bus staffs are wasting so much time for loading and unloading goods.


          The push back wasn't working properly in last row. Staff wasn't ready to entertain the problem either.


          rathimeena travels was my favourite bus service,but from last two months service was not good


          I did my booking from Pondicherry to trivandrum. I was taken from Pondicherry by a non a/c tempo to villupuram. I got the bus very late and reached trivandrum at 9.30 am.


          The AC Volvo Of Suresh Kallada was an hour late when it reached Villupuram.The bus operator arranged an AC traveller to Villupuram.The journey was comfortable.


          Travel was good but the the bus was 2.5 hrs late and the Bus had a AC failure which made them switch of the AC at around 6 in the morning !!


          Very poor punctuality. . bus is delayed two hrs it's very bad. please do not tolerate this kind of attitude. .


          Bus departure on time. Whereas arrival is late. Reached destination 2 hrs late


          The bus got delayed initially by 1 hour and later several hours


          Bus does not stop in between at night. I think it should stop once so that people can go to washroom and all. Route(dropping points) should be given properly. The bus was in good condition and they provided blanket also. The staff behaved a bit rudely. Bus reached Thampanoor late.


          There was a connection bus from Pondicherry-Villupuram which was an hour long journey in a extremely noisy and bumpy non-ac bus. This is not expected when one purchses a ticket that says Volvo A/C MultiAxle Semisleeper (2+2). RedBus needs to be more transparent and communicate clearly to the customer what it promises to deliver.


          I wish there was an option to rate less than one for punctuality. Bus was supposed to start at 9:15 PM. Bus reached by 9:30 PM, took another 20 mins to start. I booked the ticket only coz it was mentioned 7 AM as arrival time. Bus reached destination at 9:30 AM...moral, never travel with these guys if you are on a tight schedule. Apart from this, excellent bus quality / air-condition. I wish to travel again, on a holiday....


          Bus was late by more than 2hrs.


          The charges are more than what's applicable for a sleeper bus to this location. Additionally you have to take a connection bus which stops close to the midnight at no proper shelter. Seldom on time. Wouldn't recommend this service.


          I have traveled in this bus for more than 5 times. But the dep time mentioned in online is totally wrong. Even a single time the bus has not arrived at right time. Comfort level is not upto the mark. Overall its below average.


          The redbus neither the kallada travels informed about connection bus (from Pondicherry to Villupuram)that we had to take, before boarding the bus to Trivandrum. It is very unpleasant to find out everything at the last minute. It would be better if the information on the ticket showed such a change of buses, as most customers prefer a direct ride and therefore choose buses according to the stops that are to be made, especially on night rides. Please make sure that such rides are mentioned (at the time of booking) with number of bus connection changes, this would make it safer for women to board and travel in buses alone too, as some bus connections changes are made in very remote locations! The ride we had later was pleasant, good A/C bus and we were provided with blankets, and a stop for going to the toilet and have a chai. The bus driver's assistant was very responsible and checked that all passengers were present and stopped in locations on the way to the final destination, to enable passengers reach in the right location.


          Journey was very hectic. Connection bus was horrible and i had to wait at byepass for 2 hours. After i got into bus it was fine. Again i reaced here after 10 am wchich was 2 hrs delay.


          Timing to be maintained.also bus office needs to be sanitized.mosquitoes menace.otherwise good ride.


          Hello, i am using redbus quite often, but this time i am not happy with this journey. Cabin is not clean, charging ports were not working, travel time got stretched because of inexperienced driver, he doesn't know the routs as well. since its more than 12 hour journey, they have to stop at a convenient place to fulfill our personal needs, but they did not. these are the main things i want to highlight. Regards Farook


          Scheduled time of arrival was 930.However, the bus reached only at 945, thereby upsetting my travel plans. Have been told that the bus operator regularly reaches trivandrum from Pondicherry only after 9am while your website indicates arrival time by 730. Request you to make your arrangements for recording the departure and arrival time of the buses which you are connected with so that the passenger isn't put in difficulties both in terms of monetary and financial


          stop this type of passenger ride and start parcel service, that is better for you


          Completely miffed by the behavior of the Attendant, whose name is Vijayan with contact number - 9747282936. I had traveled to Pondicherry and traveled back to trivandrum in the bus - KL 45 G 5779. Vijayan's behavior towards the travelers is extremely rude and uncalled for. When a passenger asks some doubt, he behaves as if we did a big mistake by asking him something. It is his duty to respond properly to the passengers. He responds in an extremely rude manner. This is not just mine, but also my fellow passengers experience. Everything is good except this guy's behavior. When someone talks to him in english(because they dont know malayalam), he insults them and says - "better talk in malayalam, else i wont reply". This actually happened to one bengali family who traveled with me. These kind of people actually make the travel so uncomfortable. Horrible Staff behaviour. Please do something about it. Bus Quality and Punctuality is awesome.


          timing should be maintained as per online prescribed timings.


          I have very bad experience with universals travels.very poor service, I will never travel in this universal travels after this.


          The bus is not at all comfortable with the less space and boards of the bus broken I can't imagine how could Volvo come up with such a dumbass idea of converting it to a sleeper.. There was no place to lie down literally... Poor thinking from volvos side..pathetic waste of 1500 rs..


          Booked a Volvo bus from trivandrum to Pondicherry and back. Bus was very comfortable. The trip involved a changeover which was not mentioned anywhere, not on the the website or the ticket. Being north Indians there was a language barrier as well. The result - we were dropped midway on the highway at 5am in the morning with no explanation nexplanation. It was only after another


          Not at all feeling well with the service..


          I travelled from pondicherry to trivandrum on the sleeper and the bus was fairly good and staff were very cordial. Only problem is that the bus arrived 3 hours later than the time shown in the booking page.


          Several times I had travelled and none of these buses reached trivandrum on time. 7:30 am it was supposed to reach and I rrached here at 9:45 am. Never plan anthing based on the timings that you see, as this is my request, as none pf these bus people are not going to do anything....


          There was no one to help putting luggage under carriage.


          Arrival time is at 10am. Almost 13hrs journey. It showing a fake arrival time. Its not a multi axial bus. Its also showing it fake..


          Everything about the journey was good except that the bus reached the destination more than three hours behind schedule. However that was not because of any fault on the part of the driver or the bus as such. The delay was entirely due to extended traffic jams along the way due to road repairs and the onset of monsoon rains. None the less, I am giving lower rating for punctuality because the staff never made any announcements regarding the delay which they should have done as we the passengers were left wondering about the tentative arrival time.


          Worst service ever.. Made us to wait for longer from the boarding point, then they Took us in the trunk of a TOYOTA QUALIS about 50 KM from pondicherry to get in the bus.. Waited for an hour there then they took us to another place, which was in the centre of highway to get in the bus.. Changed the seat multiple times.. They were not giving us the seat we booked.. Even they made the ladies to stand in road at midnight.. Not even cared for little children.


          No proper timings....taken through wrong routes,make the passengers get down for changing bus 2 charging points,this much money you are taking from us,so should provide that facility buses.very bad experience


          Started as per schedule.But reached the destination late by around 2.30 hrs behind the scheduled time..may be fuel saving on the part of driver.


          Very very worst Here after never by unuversel travel


          Starting time was very punctual, but arriving time was delayed by 2 to 3 hours due to rain and bad road condition near Trivandrum


          reached the destination 2hrs late


          The bus drivers were very friendly, service orientated and competent.but after arrival another person of staff woke us up and really shouted " hurry, hurry, get off the bus"he did this very loud and in a very unfriendly way.why he did not give a wake up sign 10 minutes before arrival?????? So we would have enough time for leaving the bus and pack all our things. his behaviour was so unfriendly and is not good for reputation of your company. Only because of the good driver staff, you get an average remark.


          Travel from Pondicherry to Trivandrum - in Rathi meena bus is very good. Bus quality is Good, and the staff behaviour and concern to the passengers are excellent.


          i was not made aware that the bus doesn't leave from pondi to trivandrum. i had to take mini van till villapuram for 40 kms. then the bus came after 30 min wait. and finally the bus brokedownn and we had to board different bus. simply crazy night travel.


          No sane person can ever provide a bus service of such stature after looting the person of their money. This is the 4th time I am having this experience and all the times it has been the same. I booked this horrible and terrible bus coz I had to reach home in an emergencey and I had no other option. People who are travelling to various places such as Kariakal to Trivandrum to Ernakulam are packed into one bus from pondicherry and then at different places and varying times they are dropped at very odd hours to be transported by other buses. If we are lucky it might be one change in the bus. the unlucky ones get shifted 2-3 times. The change are into buses which are very badly mainatined which smell and with litter strewn everywhere. People continuoulsy keep on shifiting seats within the bus as they dont have a permanent seat. The staff too are not bothered and fail to reassure the passengers. To top it it took me 18 long hours to reach trivandrum when other services take around 12 hours. I request redbus to remove this terribly managed service from their site and request all passengers to boycott this service. I am not even mentioning about their non ac service buses which are equivalent to entering a smelly dungeon.


          Our travel from Pondicherry to Trivandrum was pleasant and quite comfortable- Thanks to redbus services & Rathi Meena services


          please in future never provide such a bad travels for any passengers(especially Universal Travels).They made us feel like in hell throughout the journey and spoiled our Christmas.We reached Trivandrum at 11.00 am in the morning of Christmas starting our journey the previous day at 6.00PM in evening(approx .17 hrs).It was such a bad experience when travelling with your family and a small kid. I would like to ask for a compensation or refund me my travelling charges at the earliest. Waiting to hear from you at the earliest. With Regards, Sunu Geo Thomas


          The bus has not stopped for refreshment like for Tea or Coffee which is normal in every luxury coach and not even for urinal especially for ladies who are travelling such a long distance from Chennai to Triuvandrum. Fix a place for both essential things for the convenience of passengers. Otherwise service is ok.


          timing very bad....


          kallada ac bus from pondicherry to trivandrum had no leg space at all.. ones the seats are pushed back you can hardly move. plus the seats allocated in the tickets are not followed other person was sitting in my seat and wont move. all together it was bad after paying for luxury coach fare.


          I got bus via universal travels.they never informd that the trip to trivandrum would be via karaikkal, which is an absolute waste of time and is a rip off.many passengers were unhappy with this repeated habit of changing buses.this is a terribly bad travels and is definitely not passenger friendly at all.


          Timing is very bad.very slow.bus complainent & waiting for other bus that one also dealy and upper berth was missing
