This is our first time booking ticket by red bus i am very happy to travel by this.
On my way back from Ranchi to Patna it was raining not just outside but also inside the bus. On complaining to the bus conductor he simply told me to move to a different seat instead of addressing the issue. The scenario was no better at the other vacant seat to which I moved. Exceptionally poor quality bus.
The rain water was leaking over my seat resulting travel on the kart seat with no comfort at all
The bus was very poorly maintained. One smart shower and whole bus was leaking. It was so severe that my suitcase in luggage compartment got completely wet.
