I booked SRS from Bangalore to Kumily(Thekkady) sleeper bus .It started on time @ 7 PM.Seats were dirty.The conductor in spite of asking the arrival time was not answering properly.It was supposed to arrive at Kumily @6.30 AM but i reached at 7.30AM .There were so many stops in between.Very bad punctuality.
Staff behaviour was rude : We called up redbus a day before to confirm if the blankets will be given in the trip mentioning the PNR number, and the guy on the phone line said yes but the driver said no blankets in non A/c Bus. this shd have been mentioned clearly.. Secondly, the driver in the bus was smoking / his conductor was smoking which was nauseating for all passengers.. The music was on till late night and in spite of requesting him that please dont smoke, he was like i dont care about u .. Can u imagine i m travelling with my family. ?? Atleast the seats of the bus should be washed properly so that they are hygenic..
New bus.Seats are not very comfortable. Friendly staff. Unable to sleep since they turn on the lights often. Overall average experience.
There were cockroaches in the bus because of which even though other things were good but we were not able to sleep peacefully.
