I have travelled from Pune to Surat twice though it comes late to Pune by an hour but reaches Surat around 5:30. Atleast they maintain the travel hours(is 7 hours of journey). Staff response in good. They do give blankets. AC is strong in front part and moderate on backside. Journey was comfortable. Bus is clean as well.
Bad services and Response with red bus....Poor Commitments against time to time...
I got an sms from SRS travels that bus is 1 hour late. I called them, they confirmed the same. I went 1 hour late, but the bus did not come for almost another hour. Now I am headed back, VRL didn’t send intimation that bus is late. I reached the travel office and was told bus is 40 minutes late. I came back 40 minutes later and now they tell me another 40 minutes... still waiting for the bus :(
The bus staff behaviour was very rude specially the driver. He was very arrogant.
