        Customer Reviews


        The driver was rude to us while getting down at dropping point for the reason being little slow in getting down with luggages and mother carrying a baby and an elderly women.. It was unacceptable behaviour and annoying.


        The service was good and punctual.My sleep was never interrupted..Worth recommending


        The bus did not go all the way to the afore mentioned destination. They provided a van to complete the last one hour journey without ever warning the passengers about the change. The bus hardly stopped for any break keeping in mind it was a 12 hour journey.


        Two tires of the bus blasted on the way to Pondicherry. luckily, we all escaped from a major accident.


        The journey started at 7 pm.The bus was very neat and comfortable.We expected a stop at some wayside hotels for supper ane using a toilet.But unfortunately the bus stopped noware for the above purpose.There was no announcement that the bus stopped .We were travelling to Pondicherry for the firstfirst time and were unaware of the changing of bus at some point.It created great difficulty which could be avoided. hemthat.


        Bus was 30 minutes late at starting point, and 90 minutes late at destination


        I have booked a ticket from Trivandrum to Pondicherry. There was no mention that the bus is not a direct one . The bus from trivandrum took us to a place 1 hout away from pondicherry . There was a drop van which came by to drop us to pondicherry .


        i travelled on 16 to pondifrom trivandrum by rathimeena non ac and back frm pondi to tvm on 17. eventhough nothing was indicated of the changing of bus frm nagercoil, i didnt mind the changing(to n fro) not so the case for young ladies. i terribly object the delay of 2.30hrs while going n coming...i want the full reimbursement of my travel or else it will rise as big issue.the bus was kept on hold for the transport of goods.


        Earlier also I travelled to the Trivandrum from Pondicherry in Universal and Kallada travels. In contrast with Universal and Kallada travels I found that Rathimeena travels bus service is very good. Why because bus was able to reach to the destination on time and it was very comfortable and safe (especially seats were very good). Really the hospitality shown by the drivers and staff it was just amazing. I had very pleasant and wonderful time when I was traveling in the bus. So, I would say that Rathimeena will be a good service for all the passengers those who want to travel to the Trivandrum from Pondicherry.


        Very worst travel in my life,don't ever think of using this travels suresh kallada again.i travelled from Trivandrum to pondicherry.They said the reporting time was 6.10 but bus reached half and hour late.Also they said the bus is non stop so they won't stop the bus for dinner.So my boarding time is evening 6 and till morning 6 no food. When I asked the manager in Nagercoil talked to me and my wife rudely.Also my drop point is Pondicherry they dropped me at vizhuppuram and asked to go by tempo traveller. That guy boarded some 10 people for 20 RS per head which is very bad. Totally a worst travel in my life.When I made a complaint for this the manager in Trivandrum office said I am telling lie.


        From last two month iam not satisfied with rathimeena service.Because they are cancelling bus service without any information and interchanging seats in prior booked seats also.yesterday i booked in ac bus berthseat from trivandrum to pondichery,but after reaching nagercoil bus operators said that nonac bus was not in service so i want to change my seat for nonac traveller.I F U CANCELLED nonac service, why ac traveller want to suffer.So dont repeat this type of manipulation.


        This is not the first time the REDBUS management has been warned against the hopeless bus operation & customer service rendered by UNIVERSAL TRAVELS. But, it is now confirmed that no corrective action taken from either end of REDBUS or Universal on the complaint lodged earlier on the same issue. This time also the passenger with a sleeper booking was informed that the facility will be provided at Nagercoil where a change of bus is arranged by them. Again after shift to another bus from Nagercoil with sleeper facility, the passenger was asked to shift to yet another bus in the mid-sleep at odd hours after leaving Neyyveli without any sleeper facility. Naturally, there was unjustified delay on arrival at Pondicherry. Either, redbus has to remove Universal Travels from their panel of Bus operators for poor service or Universal Travel has to take appropriate corrective & preventive action to avoid repeating this sort of poor service to the passengers booking through Redbus under proper intimation to this passenger within ONE WEEK time. Otherwise, legal action against the bus operators (Both Redbus & Universal) will be initiated to recover compensation to the damage caused by them. Awaiting your explanation by reply mail to reach with in one week. Ganga Dutt.D 18/01/2016


        Bus timings on site was different than reality, it was quite late. Called the rathimeena guys, got very bad behavior from the guy from Chennai office, the lady was good whom I called up in trivandrum office. They


        Nobody has informed me that the passengers will be dropped at Villupuram and and pick up arranged from there. If at all the arrangements are on that it should be be informed at the time of booking itself. Ok. You could have provided a better transport than the Tempo van as we have paid for A/c bus.I am moving to the consumer court to address my grievance


        dinner break was given late in the night...


        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.


        seating not comfortable...Need to have a dinner stop for 12 hrs journey


        No proper guide at boarding point , bus late by 30 minutes, journey 3 hours late than on website Positive Helpful attendees and good bus , stops good hotel with toilet facilities


        Nice bus and trip but only problem was the attendees number wasn't available at start of the trip which made confusions


        This bus not only Seat but also birth is not comfort for travel.


        bus no is kl-45-D-1800.The bus felt like an old volvo truck converted to a bus. even in 4way tracks it was bad and produced clunking, rattling sounds. didnt feel like a volvo. Had to wake up early morning and jump into a small van with all our luggages at Villipuram as I have booked a PONDICHERRY ticket. We all had to cram into the van. there was no help loading & unloading.


        feel gud journey


        Enjoyed the journey...!!!


        Dear Sir/ Madam, I had booked my ticket for Pondicherry from Trivandrum. As the bus was bound for Chennai, I was told that a connection vehicle would be provided to transport passengers from Villupuram to Pondicherry. However early in the morning at 4.00 a.m., I received a call from the Villupuram Office of Kallada Travels informing me that the connection vehicle is broken down and hence I will have to catch a bus from Villupuram Bus stand to Pondicherry. I got dropped at Villupuram Bus stand at 5. a.m. on 04.06.2015. I went to the Kallada Travels Office at Villupuram but it was closed. Hence I took a TNSTC bus to Pondicherry. I hope that the agency will compensate fairly for the lack of service and inconvenience caused to me. Thanking you, Dr M G Nair


        I am still on the bus. It is running at least 3 hours late. We were shifted around from bus to bus. First one bus took us from Trivandrum to nagercoil then another from nagercoil to karaikal and then a third one via currently taking us fto pondi. You should stop offering this operator's buses on your site. Verrly disappointing. Never going to trust redbus again.


        I travelled from trivandrum to pondicherry. They didnt inform that they are stopping at villupuram and then arrange a van from there to pondicherry and hence we were little upset. Thanks we didnt travel with our kids otherwise it would have been worse because of this shifting business. They didnt stop for dinner and they didnt inform in advance. Otherwise the travel was ok and may have been better if we had known all these issues so that we would have prepared for that. Dr.B.Vinoth


        No stop is avaialble for dinner from 6 PM to 5 AM


        timing was maintianed


        It's the worst bus service which I have ever travelled.. Luckily alive now... Bus hit with tree at early morning due to driver went asleep... It's total crap of bus service which could have taken people lives onboard it... So think hundred times before you take there trip


        Very good


        Nice experiance.


        As score given the services are attractive. But in the running hours detail the hours mentioned is the red bus is not matching and to be changed. otherwise a safe journey was ensured during our trip. thank u Nagarajan


        Horrible. The bus booked bus was cancelled. An ac mult axle bus was provided. And they informed that the bus won't travel to the destination and I will have to board another bus. They could have informed that when I boarded the bus. Instead they took me to some 400 kms away from my boarding station and informed me that 'We are sorry this bus doesn't go to the desired destination. Pathetic service.


        It's not a direct pondicherry bus


        This was a very horrible experience. The whole journey consisted of me travelling in 3 buses - they made me travel in an AC bus, an damaged omni bus, & a government bus. The total journey took me 16 hours. I will never ever travel in that bus service in my life again.


        I canceled the trip due to wrong timing mentioned by redbus


        universal service has been consistently bad and you must travel with this service only if you don't have seats in any other service, because this service is bound to get delayed by a minimum of 2 to 3 hours


        Too many mosquitoes, no pillows, poor ventilation, travel time too long??


        Gave non ac bus instead of ac bus actually booked.


        The bus ride was nice. The bus was comfy and the staff nice, but we booked a bus arriving at 1.30 am and we arrived at 6am instead without any explanation.


        As per info available in redbus site bus should have reached destination by night 1.30 itself and travel time should be 9.30 hrs but this bus reached by early morning 5.30 only


        Bus was very good and clean. Staffs were helpful. They provide water bottle. Very reasonable fare for this quality. I will travel again


        we had booked an A/C bus from trivandrum to pondichery through 'RED BUs" Instead we were offered a non A/C bus. I was travelling with my family and the travel was very uncomfortable as in the night it began to rain and we were unable to even keep our windows open. Punctuality was very poor. Instead of reaching pondichery at 5.30...v reached at 9.15..and my wife was unable to go for work that day. As customers we should have asked for compensation. This is very bad. you should at least refund 1/2 of our travel cost and please do not repeat this. It decreases your own credibility and trust we have towards you.


        It was a non AC bus although it is mentioned as AC.


        No water bottle was provided and took full fare upto chennai,as we are only travelling up to puducherry.I will think to book next time because there are other services as well ..


        Dear Red bus and my dear friends, If you going by bus don't and never prefer THE GREAT AND WORST SERVICE IN THE WORLD "UNIVERSAL TRAVELS". I booked the ticket from Trivandrum to Puduchery at final minute they told that there is no service today due to bus unavailability... then i dont know why the RED BUS service showing the ticket availability even upto bus departure time.I trusted red bus but after booking the ticket am thinking "RED BUS SERVICE ALSO FOUND MONEY ORIENETED". My dear friends my little advice dont use such kind of useless service like "Universal Travels" which is a Universal worst service. They dont have the kind heart to support aged people which he is Age 61 traveller person(Passenger)... also there is no alternate planning to support passengers even bus cancelled... They telling we are not responsible for this Ticket...only "RED BUS is responsible". This all shows there is no ownership in Universal Travels. Sorry my situtaion should not happen in your through life. Please dont refer universal travels...Its better to walk to HOME even travelling in Universal travels. Also please think before booking in RED BUS service. Regards, Ticket no: TGBV28472296 PNR no: UNI1067934


        We had to board three buses on way to pondichery. Really bad experience.




        Very punctual in starting and reaching the destination. Berth availability needs to be increased, senior citizen need preference for lower berth.
