Its good. Not outstanding though but things were in place.
VERY unhappy with my travel and this is not the first time this has happened. For a 9:10 PM bus anyone would be at the stop by 8:50. I was there at 8:40 PM. The bus finally came at 10 PM ! That is not all, RedBus sends an SMS with the Bus No. as PRADHAN-1, how am i to know which bus to board? The first bus comes and even with all my hand waving at the driver, it does not stop. A few calls later, and 20 mins at 10:20 PM the 2nd bus comes and stop this time. Funny they tell me that i am not on the right bus and that i need to wait till 12 AM when the two busses stop for fuel. Really? I pay 640 for this non-sense? After a heated back and forth they have me on the right bus by 11 PM. Were my troubles over? No. The have the AC full blast on, the rain seeping onto the seat & me dead tired unable to sleep. Would I want to travel with them again? No. Would i want RedBus to take such feedback with the Operation & do something about it? Yes! Why cant they treat customer with basic courtesy ? Its not free service and they had the guts to tell me that i shouldnt be agitated as they are not asking me to walk !
While booking we found that front seats are already occupied. However on the day of travel, we found entire front seats are vacant and there were only 8-10 passengers occupying rear seats. Since, I was travelling with my family, I wanted to change seat. But response from staff was not welcoming.
Over head open AC vents are disturbing. Made frequent stops for dinner and toilet. Arrival at Calcutta was delayed by 20 minutes, which is acceptable.
