It best its only dirty toilets
Its so good only needs to improve on toilet 🚻 hygiene.
Great ride, but very unsatisfied with check in team at Cape Town Station; very unfriendly and rude to customers.
Very friendly staff and drivers .Bus ok.PITTY Greyhound bus is the worst ever
Revisit your policy of exchange on travel times.I was intending to travel on 4th November from Capetown.I bought my ticket online by mistake for 5th November. When I visited your Civic Centre offices to request for a switch to anytime on the 4th other than the 3pm bus,I had intended to board,I was told to pay an additional R420.00.I found this a bit weird considering that there aren't many passengers travelling, the buses aren't at all full.Why being so rigid and inconsiderate? Money is a scarce commodity these days.
It is a great bus to travel with
Fine in every aspect
The bus started having a problem and smoked when we were in the way. We were not informed till later although it kept stopping. And we asked the driver to leave certain stops so we get home on time but it was not possible, and he was driving so slow.
The bus takes time and stop uneccesary
The bus was so late and it is not good at all. It was late by 2 hours. 😡
It's affordable price and drive so nice
I would recommend the bus to people
Great journey with respectful driver I enjoyed the trip
The driver was very kind and helpful but lady at the front desk was rude and dismissive and after the bus broke down the contingency plan was the worst almost fainted and I broke my bag as well hopped on two busses before it reached Park station
Intercape is ok. Problem is the bus drivers. They were very rude. They would talk on the phone while driving. We had few pit stops whereby we even stopped in the bushes. They didn't care if everyone is back in the bus, never bothered to count passengers. And they spoke to passengers with no respect.
Doing good job
