This bus operators are fraud people. They wait at all places on the route to take people for some higher fare. The bus reached my pickup stop @ 11pm instead of 8:30pm. The bus driver was telling that they started from Koyembedu @ 7pm. He was blaming traffic jam for the delay of 3.5 hrs to reach my pickup point.
