The bus started in time from the destination, but then it was stopped for 15 minutes for various reasons. Although, the journey was safe and comfortable, the bus was delayed too much in reaching the destination as there were lot of parcels to be delivered enroute. This was irritating and reached more than 1 hour after the prescribed arrival time. Other than that there are no complaints.
