To see the Other face of Punctuality, You have to travel with Hebron
Bus broke down at Madurai was transferred to another bus from same operator with out much delay...Bus reached pick up point 15 mins late which was acceptable. But i finally ended up reaching Marthandam by 9am instead of scheduled 8am. Bus had a dinner stop at a pretty decent area. Overall an avg stuff. Pick it only if ur traveling on budget or from Adyar Velachery OMR area
If it reaches in 12 hrs means its ok. Its taking about 14hrs. Need punctuality.
Worst behaviour from the staffs stoping in the most worst hotel for dinner. Plz carry dinner with u while travelling otherwise plz avoid tat travels.
