Noluthando D.16 November 2020 | 

It is a bad bus line, the drivers don't count people when they come back from the breaks. They nearly left one lady in FREE State. The seats are uncomfortable we were squashed the whole journey. The charger stations don't work.

Citiliner is the bus I can trust

Samkelisiwe Nomonde N.28 September 2020 | 

The bus comfort and condition is bad. None of the charging ports worked. The bus driver was extremely rude and took my number from the ticket without my consent. Poor service overall

They just need to strengthen the health and safety procedures.

Can't complain, really impressed with the smoothens of the trip

Premkumar P.8 January 2020 | 

The bus was clean, and the ride was comfortable. Well done to both drivers, who were well skilled at their task. The only issue I have is that our stop over in PE was very disappointing, we stopped at the engine garage, as this was a break stop I expected to get something to eat, and I was very disappointed to find that the shop was inadequately stocked to provide any decent food, all I could get was "junk" food. The driver explained that are only allowed to stop at these stops as passengers have previously been left behind, where there were multiple food stores. Overall trip was a pleasant experience.

I will not use Citiliner again. The toilet was out of use and because they were running late we were not allowed off to use the toilets. There was also no air conditioning and we were very hot as the bis was packed to capacity. Very inpleasant trip. A lot of passengers were unhappy.

Felicia Noluvuyo M.29 March 2019 |
