Best traveling we had

Zanele M.March 16, 2020 | 

The staff on our way to capetown was very biased, they were rude off the bus but put on face on the bus. Besides that, the trip was really great. I felt safe.

Nelisiwe M.March 6, 2020 | 

Just the seats wer very close to each other

Helen M.February 29, 2020 | 

This was my third time on a bus that arrived hours later than it was supposed to be. Some drivers are quiet rude. I also wish something can be intermittently done along the routes to do away with the urine smell from the toilet. Overall i love intercape, the fact that they are Christian based. God bless.

Consider rest room in all busses to reduce stops on the road that leads to delays of buses(consider senior citizens & kids)

Thembi N.December 24, 2019 | 

Safe and Perfect

Tshepo C.December 22, 2019 | 

I was not happy with the way I was treated by the Citiliner it was my first time using a bus but when I get to the station we where put into another bus company not the Citiliner I booked myself instead I traveled with a different bus company without any explanation what was going on and I almost missed the bus cause I was hoping to get into a Citiliner bus but then I was so flipping confused and shocked cause I wasn't sure that I was going to get into right bus to Cape and we arrived so late they told us we will be in Cape Town at 9h15 instead we arrived at 12h00 m so unhappy with the unprofessional manner Citiliner handled us on our trip and it is my last time using their service

This was my first and last time to use Citiliner,bys was supposed to leave Pretoria at 13:15pm and was an hour and half late, not comfortable at all,its a long distance trip at least a bus must be comfortable.

Keecha V.November 30, 2019 | 

The bus had a machenical fault on route and as a result it was late for the set arrival time

Goitseone M.November 26, 2019 | 

The workers are too lazy they made us stand on the queue but never checked us in saying our bus hasn't arrived, the time it arrived they were now rushing us saying we must go without checking in we will check in joburg.
