Greyhound Durban Pretoria recent customer reviews
The bus was okay till we got to the halfway point then it just didn't have power the poor driver tried but it really was a stressful drive the company seems to be declining since it came back at least we arrived safely thanks for that.
The bus arrived late, I was supposed to arrive to Pretoria at 8:30pm but we arrived at 10:38pm. What about our safety because there was no transport. The seat were dirty, had a bad smell and worse the air-conditioner was not working it was really unhealthy. I traveled 14hrs instead of the 10hrs they'd mentioned.
The bus was delayed by just over 3 hours, we were supposed to arrive at Pretoria latest by 7;00am, but we got there at 10:30 , I am not happy at all, the service was the worst i have ever experienced.

APM Durban Pretoria recent customer reviews
I'm very dissatisfied with the bus today the bus was supposed to depart at 10pm and arrive here in PTA at 6+AM but it ended up arriving at 10.30am spent the whole of 2 hours at Montrose.
Terrible. After boarding at the beach front in Durban, the driver stopped at a garage to fill up. He mentioned that we may disembark while he fills up, which I did to use the restrooms. On my arrival back to the bus. The bus was gone including my luggage. I called the APM offices several times, no one answered. I had to make means to buy another ticket the following morning. I personally enjoyed nothing about this experience.
The APM bus dropped us in the street before our destination and left us for hours and we tried other means to go to Pretoria.
