It was one of my best travels by bus. Crew members are cordial and we reached chennai well before.Thanks Redbus and Parveen.
Though bus didnt reach the boarding point on time, staff informed about delay. Staff behavior is good.
Everything thing was fine. But my seat number was changed without any notification to me through sms or e-mail. I could have missed my journey but as bus staff refused to accommodate me at first. After repeated request only they checked the list and found that my seat number has been changed. This show how responsible they are towards their passenger. What if the passenger was a senior citizen or lady passenger travelling alone.
good bus to travel.very much convenient and it was be on time.as far I had gud and comfortable journey.
