It was a nice journey , Good bus and staff also approached as a friendly manner. Only disappointed was the time of arrival, 40 Min lately arrived.but over all safe journey..
Staff behaviour is pathetic. Firstly, they are overloading the buses. In the second place, I was made to forceful shift from my booked seat to provide seating for a couple. This was due to the mismanagement of the staff and wrong booking of passengers. Something needs to be done or APR travels is gonna degrade. Very bad experience for this travel !!
The bus maintained time and the staff was well behaved and helpful.
The bus was 1hour late.one passenger was missed so waited for 45 mins to pick him in the out skirts Chennai.total 1hr 45 min late Driver behaviour rude.
