Everything was good about the bus except the charging point.
Regarding the travel the bus condition, cleanliness everything was fine but regarding the bus punctuality as per the schedule the bus should have reached ernakulam by 8.15am but arrived at 11am only. I took the ticket based on your time schedule but i was late to office and had great loss due to that. Be sure when you depict a time chart the bus follows the same.
The staff were well behaved. The bus was neat and well maintained. Had a pleasant journey.
I had the worst experience from KPN this time. Bus had some engine issues from the beginning and later smoke came. All the passengers including women were struck in highway. The response of driver and attendant were very bad. When some passenger called the KPN head office, they just cut the call when came to know about the situation. It took four hours for the mechanic to come and repair the bus. Till that time all passengers were standing in the busy highway. It was an unacceptable behavior from the bus operators. The bus was very old and I doubt that it didnt have any fitness certificate( one passenger told the same bus was fined from Kerala for not having fitness certificate). Never going to book KPN again in my life.
