We were standing for the van pickup at egmore in the road no chairs to seat and started to rain we were drunched. Need to be improve in that for facility.
Nothing was good. Punctuality was too poor. The timing said bus starts at 1:30 pm and will reach Velankanni at 9 pm. But reached only at 10:45 pm. Frankly dont understand why was he taking a round about in Pondy for so long for no reason. We reached karaikal itself only by 9 pm, wonder when will we reach Velanakanni.
