They should improve their service by maybe hiring people who'll check the passenger's names on the list, it must not be done by the driver

Mapula P.February 4, 2020 | 

The bus is comfortable

Absalom Tuhafeni A.February 1, 2020 | 

The driver and staffs members are really friendly but they should please learn to depart timely. Also those many turns in the towns on our way to Bloemfontein wasted our time. I literally missed my meeting scheduled at 14H00 in Bloemfontein that same day because the arrival time supposed to be 13H35 but sadly we got here past 15H . If it’s a direct trip then why do your administration make it possible for the driver to keep making turn at every bus station? Otherwise start giving estimated time as some of we rely on what we have paid and booked for.
