A/C was good. Services of the attender in the bus was also good and polite. But during the journey, we could experience lot of jerks which indicates the shock absorbers were not working properly. Moreover, the driver was not slowing down the vehicle while crossing the speed breakers and some ditches on the road. Many passengers cursed him for bad driving. The Driving after Vijayawada was worst. From 4 am onwards the driving was good. The Bus reached Chennai CBT was 40 minutes late. In the mid nite there was some problems due to which the bus was jumping continuously as if the re-threaded tyre is worn out. Stopped the bus for 3 times and then waited for next bus in that route. Took tools from them to repair and then it was fine.
It was really horrible travel with APSRTC bus . Never in my life i will travel . AC is not working properly and when asked changed my seat to other . But after 3 hrs passenger came and took his seat and i was moved again . It took 16 hrs to reach Chennai . 4.30 it boarded at Visakhapatnam and reached chennai at 8.40 .
The journey was smooth, but the bus was almost 1 hour late when it reached Chennai. Otherwise a not so bad experience.
expected time was 0630 cmbt , reached at 0745 cmbt - which ruined my plans
