The bus was good. Interiors were clean. Blankets were provided. Only negative thing is that the bus scheduled for 10.30pm came at 11.30pm. Rest all good. Neeta Bus should improve on punctuality of their bus.
The operator ( Paulo travels ) mentions the bus will reach Margaon by 6:30 am. This is a total lie, I wish they would be more honest as often bus schedules are linked to work. I had to reach office by 10 am and was very disappointed when i found out the bus would reach Margaon by 9 am onl, and that this is the normal time for the journey. Further I was offloaded in Panjim and had to board a different non AC bus of very low standards.
Its 8:30pm from Katraj and bus reached at 9:15pm
Very bad experience. Bus Reached at 2AM at night ( Thurday morning) which is schedule to depart on Wed night ( 11 PM ) . Once it is reached Pune it waited for additional 1 hr so technically started at 3 AM from Pune. I am not sure whether I will book Neeta in future. Ideally bus from Pune should have start from Pune not sure why they started from Mumbai.
