Simon M.September 24, 2020 | 

There’s room for improvement in adhering to the departure time. Also, the driver made too many stops along the way, which gives rise to a risk of arriving late

Due to Covid 19, we were informed that we will not be sharing seats but it was a different case to greyhound. I was on seat 5A and someone occupied 5B which was ridiculous. Also the driver wasnt friendly, when he was asked why we had to share, he told us that he is just a driver not the owner. We must email or call the

I got disappointed to find that there was no wifi in the bus nd also to find that the charging port on the seat I was using was not working

Sipelele G.August 23, 2020 | 

The bus had no arm rest and charging ports. So much for paying R350 to Durban.

Pearl N.August 21, 2020 | 

No regrets

Glynis V.August 21, 2020 | 

I thought the Driver was marvellous. So careful and not an easy journey through mountain passes, Town Hill - a notorious accident hotspot and in the late afternoon rush hour traffic!!! So careful and cheerful. Please see he gets my praises.
