Lonavala, often called Lonavla is a picturesque hill resort situated in the Pune district of Maharashtra. A popular getaway destination, Lonavala is famous for the unique charm that it possesses, especially during the Monsoons. Although it is more renowned as a hill resort, the place has achieved a special place in the gastronomic chart of the country because of a hard candy sweet known as chikki (sweetmeat made out of Groundnuts and Jaggery), which is the specialty of the region. It is also a major railway station placed on the railway line connecting Mumbai and Pune. Lonavala is also an important town along the Mumbai-Pune road. That the place is important is apparent from the fact that both the major highways - the Mumbai-Pune Expressway as well as the Mumbai-Pune highway - passes through Lonavala. Lonavala is the ideal spot to spend a quiet weekend with family and friends, away from the fast-paced city life.
Pathetic service. Dont even ask about punctuality...
I had to wait for almost 1 hr for bus to depart from Mumbai. It was never mentioned about the pick up bus from Sion as well. Rude behavior of agents accompanied with delay of an hour has lost the reputation of the travel company in eyes of mine.Total unprofessional answers were repeatedly given while contacting red bus customer care as an excuse.Id have given a minus rating for punctuality.Please give a thought towards service and punctuality of buses.
The bus was very late. No proper response from Staff. Changed bus 2-3 times just to reach Lonawala.
The journey start was pathetic. My bus was supposed to be a Mumbai lonavala bus. It was supposed to be a starting bus from dadar which was altogether cancelled. we were then asked to take a bus already started from borivali. Also the seats offered were different from what we booked. The journey which was supposed to start at 7:20 commenced only at 8:40. Please note total travel time was 2 hrs and bus was 1:40 hrs left. Will refrain from making advance bookings hereon
