Sikhokele N.5 January 2021 | 

It was on time, but it stuck along the way, that's why it delayed and it didn't arrive on the speculated time it arrived later.

Kholisa N.24 December 2020 |

The driving wasn't really good it was scary, lots of emergency breaks. Driving needs to be steady but everything else is perfect

If the top side can be more comfortable like down side your busses will be more comfortable.

The bus driver left me at the refreshing station even though he was told I was still not in and my child was in the bus

Thandokazi N.11 February 2020 | 

I did not enjoy the trip at all it took too long maybe its becuase the initial bus had an aircon issue that's why we had to change the busses

Nonyameko K.28 December 2019 | 

I will always use greyhoundbuses, I recommend it to my family & friends for its safety accuracy and comfort.

Vuyani N.2 December 2019 | 

We were ok with everything except for the delay which was not their fault.

Maria M.18 November 2019 | 

The only thing I am not satisfied with is the toilets un hygienic the ladies are going to get sick

Masontaga M.15 July 2019 | 

I would travel using intercape all the time. Seats are comfortable, bus is clean and there's a heater that gets switched on when it gets cold.

Avela M.14 December 2018 | 

The bus arrived earlier in Johannesburg.

Lindiwe H.2 May 2018 | 

I was just sitting next to a racist who made my experience unpleasant, not your fault though but I wish more should be done for passengers who make other passenger's experience unpleasant.
