Late by 2 hours to arrival..... latr by 4 hours to departure... worst
Its too bad we just reached by 13.00 only
Even though the bus quality is ok, there is no responsibility at all. The bus was 2 hours late and there was no intimation about that and also about bus number. The worst part was that the bus staff forced me to get down in a toll gate before the city bypass instead of my actual bus stop. He asked me to get a town bus to go to my bus stop. I had paid 1300 INR(which is way too high already) for the ticket and I had been dropped in a toll gate which was way before my stop. Really pathetic..
