Bulelwa Z.September 7, 2020 | 

I was very sceptical to travel because of the covid. Intercape made travelling easy and took all measures to ensure safety of passenger. I am satisfied with their overall service.

Good bus and we arrived on time

Siliziwe M.February 17, 2020 | 

I booked my ticket for Citiliner plus but I was put in the old busses. There was no place to charge, the isle was very narrow and people kept bumping into each other. The seats weren’t comfortable at all. The price of my ticket did not meet the bus I got. And this is unusual because I booked the same bus going to PE from Cape Town and it was perfect.

Zandile S.February 10, 2020 | 

The seat was adjustable, it was very bad seating straight for 12 hours and the drivers were so rude, not willing to help.

Lutho S.February 5, 2020 | 

Firstly I booked sleep liner and endup in budget liner don't know how.and that was unacceptable .secondly no one told me that the bus will only pickup at greenaches and not at Intercape central.and was waiting there trying to call to get some answers and numbers for people who can able to assist me but was told that on their system is showing that pickup is only greenaches while on my ticket showing port Elizabeth only ..was so disappointed but luckily bus was very late so I did manage to get there on time.

It was an awsome trip

Camilla Sylvest R.October 14, 2019 | 

The staff was yelling a lot but otherwise friendly. The bus was really cold or really hot at some points. The bus stop in port elisabeth wasn’t safe as the office was closed and there was nowhere to wait for the bus. We had to pay our Uber driver to stay and wait with us. Not that tourist friendly as is lack a lot of important information

Nosiyambonga M.September 29, 2019 | 

I was not happy it was raining inside the bus and chairs are moving

Ruvimbo G.September 14, 2019 |
