Women traveling in sleeper coach but no screen was there. Irresponsible answer from bus staff members.. they r requested to adjust. Really very wrost experience happened on that day.
The bus quality is very poor.The dropping point was exactly what i booked.Horrible travel.
They never mind about timing, so dont mind there time chart. And important thinks is luggage are more worth then passengers itll get delivered first then only passengers can go to bus station. Its also like share auto.
we just asked the bus driver what time (approx) bus will reach to salem, he replied very badly. Please give warning to this type of Drivers...and also we confirmed our reporting earlier but they stopped somewhere and his behaviour also very worst...
