Go to Karaikudi its on time superb. But bus window its not fully closed. That one is disadvantage. Any way staff behaviour is nice.
one of the worst experience ever had in terms of bus arrival and reaching destination on time...worst maintenance..
Suppose to board the bus at 9.45 PM but boarded the bus only at 10.45 PM. No intimation or response from KPN travels. Worst part is, I was waiting in KPN travels shop they too were not informed about the delay. one of the helpline number provided in ticket for KPN travels was an invalid number.
The A.C. was not working properly due to the fault in belt. The bus departed after 45minutes and reached 3 hrs late. Due to lack of staff and ego clashes between the driver and staff. No proper service station or immediate solution was taken for A.C. repair. we suffered nearly 3hrs without A.C. inside the bus.
