The Trip was Wonderful, the Speed and time all Good, problem was THE BUS TEMPERATURE, IT WAS FREEZING COLD, the driver put it down to 10 degrees like freezing, one passenger even complained, was so unhappy about that and it wasn't the first time, the Intercape Bus was this cold.

The bus was just ok and traveled safely. Even though we arrived late in Tshwane, I am not complaining. Enjoyed it very much. The gentleman that was seating us in the bus was more understanding to people with special needs. It was absolutely incredible to witness.

Although they say toilets are no longer used cz of the outbreak, I guess using the bus that has toilet its just a relief on its own regardless whether they gonna be used on not.
