I wont recommend if ur looking for punctual service ...was late for 1.30 hrs
Wouldnt recommend this bus to anyone. They stopped the bus @ Perungulathur & asked everyone to get down stating traffic
I am very happy using your bus service. Reached the destination on time.
The bus was 1.5hrs late. The bus scheduled at 11:00 reached at pickup point in palakkad by 12:30. Tried KPN travels Salem office and the landlines provided in Redbus ticket. But there was no response from palakkad office (not picking up calls in-spite of calling 20-30 times) and Salem office not ready to track the bus saying "server is down". I wasnt even sure i was standing at the right location or bus is indeed coming. Not the best way of customer service. KPN could use more customer friendly staff and showing some courtesy with the customers would go a longway, considering that they are paying premium price for the services.
