Intercity Inter-connect Johannesburg Bloemfontein recent customer reviews
The bus was clean and it was on time for each and every stop, as a result I reached my destination early and I was impressed with that. However the bus is quit small so it is not that comfortable for tall people, I had to adjust the way in which I seat so as to ensure my comfortability.
Wooow it was my first time in the mini bus👌wish I could always take my trips in it, drivers100 %outstanding services
I initially received a message that the bus is delayed then we were transported in a 25 sitter small bus which was so uncomfortable from Johannesburg to Bloemfontein. We were not even given any explanation nor an option to postpone our trip. I'm not happy at all. I'm tall and I was sitting were my legs were on a wheel hump.

Eagle Liner Johannesburg Bloemfontein recent customer reviews
There was no order in allocating the passengers in the correct buses. I had to ask around for the bus I was supposed to get in. Only if the passengers can be directed straight to their bus from security/examiners check point, a lot of confusion and time waisting can be avoided. My bus only left Park Station at 19:20 and arrived in Bloemfontein 01:40 while it was initially scheduled from 18:45 - 11:45. This is really interfering with connection arrangements made by passengers at their destinations. Your attention in this regard will really help in keeping your loyal customers... your drivers are generally very professional in handling the passengers' needs. Kind regards BJ MATSHABISA
I am not happy ur drivers which pass volksrust they are very rude nd I always delay because their attitude

The bus was very late, was supposed to arrive 2:10 but ended up arriving at 4:30
The bus was smelly and did not leave at the said time. Other than that it was all good.thanks
One star for the teller and one star for the driver. Both were very kind and friendly. Zero for the bus, it was old, sitcom was blowing hot air and it wasn’t comfortable at all. I will never use this bus to travel anywhere again

Additionally, customers have reported that the staff is arrogant and impolite towards passengers. The driver often talks on the phone while driving, compromising safety. Furthermore, there is a shortage of seats due to one being reserved for another driver's use. These issues have been consistently mentioned across multiple reviews.
VILAMORA Johannesburg Bloemfontein recent customer reviews
The bus was delayed by more than an hour and no personnel from Vilamora seemed to bother to come and update us. I took it to my responsibility to go to their office and no one was on duty at the time. It was was extremely frustrating to say the least.
The 16:30 bus came 2 hours 30 minutes late without any prior notification to commuters and I had to check with ticket office since there was no examiner at Park Station platform 5 where we queued for tickets inspection. This kind of inconvenience and unprofessionalism is costly and our safety at our destinations is compromised... The bus that finally came was comfortable and warm though some windows were letting in cold air because of defective sealing rubbers on them.
Terrible Horrible experience, the bus was stopping along the way. The steering wheel was broken but the driver persisted even though he saw that he’s putting our lives in danger. Cockroaches were all over us while the bus was parked on the side of N1. The driver was rude and didn’t want communicate with us regarding when will another bus come or we’ll get help from. He just went to sleep inside the bus while we were standing outside in the cold due to those cockroaches. We didn’t even reach our destination (Bloemfontein), I had to be fetched from Kroonstad another waste of money. What a joke of a bus company. Very unprofessional

Greyhound Johannesburg Bloemfontein recent customer reviews
I decided to book the bus for my mother because I was stuck in a meeting. 🤦🏾 Nkos’ yami
Worst service ever. The bus was 4 hours late and there were no service consults to assist or give updates. I booked a luxury line but was put in a small bus, no leg space, very uncomfortable experience.
The only problem that I had with Greyhound was the delay and lack of communication regarding the bus delay.
