I booked 10:30PM bus at Egmore, Mr. Sharuk(044 42147157) from KPN called me by 8PM and told the bus is Canceled and I need to board the 11:00 PM bus at Koyembedu. I have booked a individual sleeper and told him regarding that, he promised me the same type of sleeper will be provided but that was also a lie. I found another traveler with the same problem.
I had booked Lemon Travels. But the bus had some problem in the middle. It stopped at 1:30 am in Walajah. It took almost 5 hours to rectify the problem. It started at 5:45 am again. So instead of reaching Bangalore at 6 am, i had reached at 11 am. Due to that i had to waste half day and i reached office only on afternoon. My half day salary had been wasted. I would be happy if you would be able to compensate some of the amount of the bus ticket. Incase you are compensating the amount, i will provide further details. Thanking you. Harish R.
Pick up van delayed and no free seat. Had to stand for some time and adjusted with another 2 person on small seat, not even enough for 2 people. Bus was so old and making strange noises, only positive is that it reached on time to Bangalore.
Bus was delayed by half an hour as it arrived late.
