They allow other passengers to sit in the lane of the bus which is illegal.
Do not travel with night riders city link. They started at 9:30 from Pune and reached Aurangabad at 4:30 am which is very late. They asked the passengers who were sleeping to get down and change the bus for remaining journey. Talking to the bus driver and the conductor is waste of time as they are very rude.
Positives: nill Negatives: 1. On website it was mentioned that the bus reaches to the destination at 8 AM but actually it reached at 11.30 AM.(3 hours late) 2. The staff members were so irresponsible in following the time that they used to take a halt of 30 mins after every 2 hours. When asked about the the delay in reaching, they were so arrogant that they even dont care of the passengers.for 10 hours journey they took 13 hours. 3. At Ahmednagar, the bus was so packed that we were feeling breathless not even take the breath due to so much croud(without booking/without ticket). 4.Overall it was a hell experience.I will never recommend this bus to anybody.
No WiFi and no water bottle was given as mentioned on the booking page. When we asked they told us this is not the bus.
