There was no vehicle scheduled for pickup from boarding point i booked. The bus operator called me and asked me to come to point which was 17km away from the point i booked. I had booked sleeper class. Seats were so dirty. For the first time i tried this service and it is worst.
the coaches were awesome and the staff were very helpful...bus left on time
BUs was very good .. seats were very comfortable .. CCTV was installed .. great to see that .. overall very good journey .. Only thing which made to worry was its leaving Bangalore too late at 12.00 AM in Jalhalli .. its pretty unsafe to wait in Jalhalli at that time . else bus was very good.
Seats were not clean and had lot of dust on it ended up cleaning the seat for like 1 hour
