Budgetliner buses are not for long distance since toilet rooms are not provided within

Unathi M.3 February 2020 | 

They took more than one hour waiting for people who were late for bus

Apindile N.5 January 2020 | 

Intercape must also use N1 route

Nomasebe S.11 December 2019 | 

It was a bit late ... supposedly should pull at 6h20 but it was 6h29 time of its arrival and picking. Getting to Mtata was ridiculous... we were to reach Mtata by 9h55 but it was 11h20.

The trip was fine except for the charger ports that were not working

Nandipha Z.26 October 2019 | 

Please service the buses. It’s unacceptable that we broke down before we left cpt and still had to wait three hours for a new bus. I am very disappointed
