Always worst timing with KPN. poor bus quality
I was made to wait for more than 3 hours before I boarded the bus. No proper waiting hall and poor staff responsibility.
Departure time was toooo late by 1 hr, and no proper place for stop, since they stopped somewhere on the highways where there was no rest rooms even.
worst traveling in my lifetime.??. bus was late for 3 hour without any travel.quality of bus was dam bad.
