For collecting nearly Rs.1000, this is bad experience. The bus was 1.15 minutes late and arrival was 2.30 hours late than scheduled. Bus was low quality and I could not sleep at all. I booked sleeper only bcos I could sleep well and go. Having spent nearly 1000, this was not possible. Arguing bus driver - I simply asked when it will come. he started arguing for 15 minutes (even while driving!) . His excuse is there is traffic. Actually They started from starting point(i got sms) late only. ALSO FRIDAY WEEKENDS IS ALWAYS TRAFFIC. SO THEY SHOULD START EARLY ACCORDINGLY. WHEN OTHER OPERATORS COME ON TIME(SAME ROUTE), THIS IS NOT EXCUSE. I wouldnt travel in this travels henceforth. I dont care to since lot of operators available.
Travel was good, little delay at destination point. overall, I give 4/5 Rating.
My boarding point was at Koyembedu. Bus reached to election Commission on time. And also had a safe journey. I reached coimbatore at the expected time
Bus started at the actual time. Reached Coimbatore earlier. the ticket fair also reasonable.
