Extremely sorry to say, I had worst experience in my lifetime travel. Bus quality, service & driving is totally unacceptable. Moreover bus got break down before Pondicherry bus stand
I was asked to report yesterday (10.07.2016) at 11.40 PM and I reported at 11.30 PM. But the bus came at 01.00 AM today (11.07.2016). More than 90 minutes waited in front of KPN office. No rest room facility in KPN office at Erode. Sat outside the office with more noise of buses plying on road and bad smell of gutter in front of KPN office.
This time I got very good driver who shown his humanity in very good manner
Cleanliness was too bad and staffs were not behaving good with passengers.
