I booked this time my ticket from Red bus.
I got a message stating bus was dealyed by 30 min which was good. I am saying good because I had very bad experience earlier with other bus providers.Bus was delayed, I tried to contact number given and they diverted to local bus authorized pocs but no one knows where was the bus and not sure if bus will come or not. Bus came late by 2 hrs and at mid night at round 2 am they asked to vacate the bus and move in a different bus thought bus is fine. there are old people, small kids and bus providers never cared about. there were more chances of missing luggage as well with sleepy eyes and confused situation. there is no official announcement.
But this time, I booked SVR. This Bus was neat, AC is good and blankets are fine to use.
Bus arrived 30min late as indicated in message and he tried to cover and reached bangalore by 9am. Overall just 1 hr delay but journey was quite good.There is no change in bus in the midnight which some of the other reknown travels will do.
