I travelled from Bangalore to Udumalpet on the night of 3rd September 2016. On 4th Sept morning, I woke up around 7.30 AM when the bus was reaching Pollachi and then dosed off again. When I woke up again at around 8.15 A.M. I realized that the bus had been parked on the road side for some time and thought that they had stopped for tea. But after few minutes I realized that no one is there in the bus and I have been locked out in the bus. Luckily the drivers cabin side door was open and I got out of the bus through that exit. Actually, the bus has been put in the parking for the day but the staff had not bothered to confirm if all the passengers have got out of the bus before taking it to the parking area. I managed to locate the driver and complained and he was saying that he was calling out when the bus reached Udumalpet and presumed that all passengers would have got out, so brought the bus to the hold up area. So much for KPN passenger care!
worst bus I have ever seen.actual bus time was 10 bus didnt come till 2.30.
Boarding venue is changed there is no proper intimation and the travel time is very worst . no punctuality.
The bus reached Udumalpet at 10 am, instead of 7 am. Though there was small accident during the journey at 1 am, no effort has been taken to maintain punctuality. Alternate arrangements made were very poor and there was delay at every stage. All this could have been avoided had the Driver was a bit cautious which shows the poor quality of service. My experience with KPN all along is very bad.
