Mumbai, earlier known as Bombay, is the capital of the State of Maharashtra.

Nonetheless, Mumbai welcomes people from all walks of life irrespective of their backgrounds. The British developed what was a cluster of seven islands into the bustling city called Mumbai. It was also under the British rule that the place attained importance and further developed into a major financial and commercial hub of the country. Now, Mumbai is often called the City that never sleeps, owing to the commercial and financial activities that the city witnesses even during the night times.

The behavior as well as the management of the entire seabird staff is very poor.There are two connecting buses for this route and the change is done in bangalore. I was travelling with luggage i.e my bicycle and being informed that dropping point and luggage unloading points are different i had to go to some other drop point to unload my bicycle. This made me miss my connecting seabird bus from bangalore to vellore.
It was terrible.I booked an A.C. bus but the bus was changed for the travellers mentioning that the bus was having technical issues.Also we paid for a.c semi-sleeper bus but were made to travel through a rubbish,uncomfortable,noisy sleeper bus. The worst scene was when we asked them to give us our balance money in return,they even refused to do that.No matter how hard we tried.Some passengers had to travel to TamilNadu.They could have arranged something for us immediately.But they didnt .Instead what they did was to make us wait for another 3-4 hrs even after so much delay.The bus driver and conductor had known the technical issues inPune itself.There only they could have changed the bus but they didnt and made us suffer badly. We were supposed to reach Bangalore in afternoon at nearly 1-2p.m but we reached at 8:00p.m. I was supposed to reach Vellore by evening 5:00p.m. but reached next day at nearly 4:00 a.m. I hated this.WOULD NEVER EVER PREFER IT AGAIN OR SUGGEST ANYONE. All this bullshit they made us suffer so much!!!
This journey will go as the worst journey of all time. The bus was delayed from the mumbai itself by 1 hour. There was no stop on 11/5/15 after the halt at 7 am. Then there was once again delay at banglore for 1 hour. In total the schedule time for the arrival was 4 pm but we reached at 7 pm. so kindly solve the problem.
Had a very bad experience during this trip. The luggage carrier compartment under the bus flew open on the highway between Mumbai and Pune. It figures out the lock on the carrier door were faulty and even on being aware of this the staff did not keep the horizontal safety guard at the carrier opening. 2 heavy trolley bags (including one of mine) got tossed out of the bus and the driver became aware of this only after a kilometer or so... The staff retrieved the luggage but my bag was heavily damaged. When I questioned the staff about this, they dismissed off the situation saying "wapas la kar de diya naa... aur kya chahiye?". Rs.3000-4000 worth bag was damaged. Not even one apology from them. Will never recommend this bus service to anybody. Ever. Another thing to note here was that no baggage tags or anything was given. The passenger`s seat number was scribbled on the back of the luggage using a chalk. No cross checking was done during departure. Anybody could depart with anybodys luggage if they wanted to. I guess I was not worried about this as no one would have wanted to claim a severely damaged bag...
