The only problem was the heater it was off... Nights are very cold
This one sucks
They don't attend to customers' calls or emails
Whole trip was on Point but AIR CONDITIOING WAS FREEZING... couldn't even take a nap, please speak to your Drivers about it...
To many stop on the way
This is a good bus company , they just need to work on the estimated time of arrival
Actual on my way to the bus station I was involved in an accident taxi tyre bust, I got there late , I asked the lady by the reception to put me on the next bus she said no I have to buy another ticket.i found that very stupid because it's the same company why cant they help us if we are in trouble. The next bus was still the same price. Just different times.
Continues to provide great service
Comfortable buses but can do with better management with seat allocation
Overall I'm satisfied
I always have the best experience
Its very good and comfortable but too much air conditioning
Bought the ticket on line however the price quoted was diferrent from what was debited from by bank account by R60
A really good bus line. One and only I've been using. I'd recommend it on any day.
The bus was very small , I was suffocated
Good interaction and information, bus was clean and trip was comfortable
Stop using client like trush bcoz i booked a bus with fully fuctioning facilities but i got budget liner. What a shame guy mxm.
I am highly dissatisfied. Want my money refunded
My bus was more than 1hour late,stop over we waited for more than one hour whilst other busses were leaving,,absolutely disgusting service!
The staff at the InterCape station in Pietermaritzburg took out R1470 from my account instead of R147! They did a return of the funds but it still has not reflected! I am of the belief that this was intentional especially the way he reacted! It was very suspicious. Had I not been paying attention it would have been left at that.
Good service, the only thing I was looking for was a port to charge my phone but I did not find it, maybe I did look at the right place
Very comfortable and friendly.
Stop being late!!!
The bus scheduled for 23:55 arrived an hour late and we were locked outside the station by the stuff telling us that they don’t get paid overtime. We go a puncher and the replacement bus came 4 hours later and it had no heater we had to be in the cold till the sun came up
Please check if your buses times if they are punctually because it inconviences passangers and affect their safety especially at night
too many stops and bus took forever to leave stops
We were not properly informed about the bus being late. Instead the male staff at the office had terrible attitude towards us.
Too many bus stop that passenger are unaware of
