Hi, I could not undertake my travel which was booked for Friday. As a goodwill gesture if you can refund the money I will be very happy and will try to use your services in future without fail
TRAVELLED BY SRS TRAVELS FROM MADURAI TO SALEM. BUS CREW WAS CORDIAL. BUS QUALITY COMMENDABLE. IT WAS NEAT AND CLEAN. BUT ARRIVAL TIME WAS CONSIDERABLY LATE BY NEARLY 30 MINUTES AT THE BOARDING POINT. BUT THEY DROPPED AT SALEM AT THE CORRECT TIME.THAT IS WHY I AM COMPELLED TO REDUCE ONE POINT FOR PUCTUALITY.
I just got a seat in last row to travel. But the comfort-ness is very poor as an ordinary bus and also its noisy inside
Bus came very late. It would be highly appreciated the timing of the bus informed in advance
