Shifting before 45km of Mahabaleswar was not known to us.Had it been known to us,mental preparation could have been done.Any way finally it was a good journey.
Very bad experience with my travel(Neeta travels). The bus which I boarded is Mumbai service and the driver told me, we have to get down just before Pune and they will arrange another small bus to drop us at Mahabaleshwar. They suppose to wake us up by 5 AM but they failed to do that. When I realized that we are crossing Pune, I went to the driver(driver changed somewhere) but he do not have any information about mahabaleshwar tickets. The cleaner who suppose to wake us up was sleeping. they said that they will arrange a vehicle to drop us but that may take at least 5 hr from that place. So ultimately we have changed our plan and went to Mumbai(which we have planned two days later). Most irritating thing was, none of the bus staff had the travel chart. So do not chose Neeta travels.
Journey time can be improved by timely start of bus and cutting unnecessary stoppages.
Staff behaviour was very rude. Driver irritated when I ask question about arrival time.
