The bus was 2 hours late and this punctuality issue happened in Rathi meena with my personal experience 4 times whenever i used. i would recommend not to use rathi meena at all friends, relatives and known persons.
bus actual time 11.45 pm but it came by after 1 .00 am, bus seats very dirty. government bus maintenance better than this.
Seating were not as booked. After enquiry only they provided me the seat which I booked
The time of departure on redbud site and actual is different. It is always one hour afterwards. This not this trip . Do the time of departure is misleading. Either you change immediately
