bus started at 21:45 when timing was 21:00 but it it reached to Dhanbad before time, 03:30.
Bus was not comfortable for 5 Hours journey as compared to the other competitors bus quality
The bus started late at around 9.45 instead of 9PM. I called the bsnl MOBILE NUMBER MENTIONED IN THE TICKET, BUT SOMEBODY DISCONNECTED THE CALL, AND THEN DIDNT RESPOND THE NEXT TIME. Staffs were very reluctant to even show the seats/berth. Bus quality should be improved, whenever the bus turned , it was quite uncomfortable for somebody sleeping. Bus was an old one, though the berth quality was good, spacious, with pillow. Blankets should be provided. Bus reached Dhanbad 1 hr early at 3 AM, instead of scheduled time of 4 AM, and no staff make any alert for this arrival at before time, it seemed, the bus would have skipped the destination if I was not awake. There is probably no ac sleeper night bus , so I guess these guys are taking advantage of not having any competitor, they should pull up their socks instead of taking us for granted. However thanks to red bus, for the discount.
On 17th oct bus was 2 hrs late.we were trying to get information but we havnt got any information when we are at bus stand.we were standing continuously for 2 hrs.we want more updates of bus service when there is some issue.
