I have travelled to tenkasi more often from salem than from chennai, but not even once KPN has reached in time.
The bus was delayed by 2 hrs at the pick up point. We reached Tenkasi by 3.30 pm next day which was delay by more than 8 hrs. A/C was not working. Terrible journey experience.Will be happy to get full refund for the journey.
BUS ETA AT VANDALUR IS 10.45PM BUT ARRIVED BY 12.20PM OK LEAVE THIS MAY BE TRAFFIC. POINT NO2, I BOOKED A.C. SLEEPER SEAT NO U25 AND L26 BOTH THE SEAT GET WET ALSO KEEP ON DROPPING OFF WATER THROUGH A.C. INLET. MY BED FULL OF WATER, NOT ONLY MINE BUT ALL THE UPPER BREATHS AND SOME LOWER BERTHS ARE SAME. POINT NO3 SINGLE DRIVER IN THAT BUS NO OTHER KPN STAFF IN THAT, HE IS NOT TAKING RESPONSIBILITY OF THIS POOR CONDITION & SAYING THAT YOU CAN CONTACT COMPANY. AND SHARE COMPANY CONTACT THERE ARE NO PROPER RESPONSE. POINT NO4 VEHICLE ETA AT TENKASI IS 8.30AM INSPITE IT REACH BY 3.00PM NEARLY 7 HRS DELAY. POINT NO5 I PAID RS870X2 SEATS FOR A.C. SLEEPER BUT THE WHOLE NIGHT I TRAVELED IN CLEANER SEAT. THIS SEEMS KPN NEED 0% CUSTOMER Satisfaction , BUT NEED 100% CUSTOMER MONEY. NEXT DAY I AM OCCUPIED WITH SOME REGISTRATION WORK SO I HAVE NO OTHER WAY, OTHER THAN ACCEPT THIS BAD JOURNEY. I request REDBUS to share my feelings with KPN.I am sure KPN with not even do any enquiry on this or even say a courtesy sorry to passengers. But I cant go like this, this is like earning a lot from public tolerance.
Very very worst service..started from Chennai on 10:30 and reached tenkasi next day 4 pm.. all sleeper sheet were wet due to bus worst bus rain water came inside
