The bus seat was damaged.. The push back option in the front seat is damaged and its falling on my seat.. Dont know what should I do.. And had only one driver driving all the way.. Bus supposed to reach chennai at 5 am but reached 7.30 am.. I booked online so there is no options to change my seat if it is damaged... Pls consider it should not happened in future..
bus quality worst, staff behaviour no problem and punctuality not bad.
Ac was not sufficient. The blankets and bed spreads were not washed at all.. And the total time from kovilpatti to chennai took 13 hours without any traffic where the other buses are taking only 8-9 hours. The glass windows could not be shut properly. Totally the travel in KPN was worst.
Departure Time is 10.00 pm but Bus came by 10.30pm. Bedhseets provided is not Gud & windows and grills in sleeper is full of dust. Reached Perungulatur[Chennai] by 10.30pm. Almost 12hrs journey. When we asked reason for late they told like they driving with single driver so that they stopped everywhere & had tea as he felt sleepy. If the passenger point of view its very Risky to travel like this. Eventhough KPN is well known for Brand Name, we didnt expect this from such a Travels.
