Very bad seats. Push backs and leg rest were not working.
Buses need to be maintained and cleaned. At least a bottle of water should be provided for the journey.
Poor service. Staffs are not answering properly and they changed the bus in mid of travel.. We waited for more than one hour in bus stand. We booked front seats but they told us to sit in last seats. They told like if you are not ok with last seat please cancel and get down from bus. Worst ..
The interior of the bus looked great compared to the previous KPN sleeper bus which I took from Madurai to Chennai a month ago. But the ride was rough and rattling even on the smooth High ways. While it departed from Kodai on time, at Didigul I could see lots of confusion as another of their was cancelled and pax were boarding this bus with over lapping seat allocation. But the conductor and the driver on the best were excellent. The assistant at Madurai was handling the customers like a mofusul stand.
