Thantaswa M.7 January 2021 | 

It is very comfortable, but the problem is mostly with the toilet for someone who is sitting next to it really becomes a problem, I could not wait to get to umtata the last time because of the smell, I'm not sure whether it is because people were not flushing or what

Gcotyiswa M.5 January 2021 | 

The queue was not controlled there was a stampede, and the staff member who was boarding was rude she even promised to leave us. They said they will only be accommodating 50 pax but that didn't happen and there was no headcount.

Comfortable, love that they have charging ports. Hopefully they can find a way to open the toilets inside the bus again. It was very uncomfortable that we could not use the bus toilet.

The bus left Mthatha late, it stopped for a long time to many pick up arrears. It did not stop for us to buy food on the usual food stores.

I feel the bus wasn't in acondition to take passengers as the window was broken they used a cardboard to cover the window and it went out while we were on the road and even I be dropped off by the garage as I was late for work driver refused I feel it was unfair unreasonable as the bus was very late and people complained of feeling cold because of the window they had to turn heater high I could not breath properly as I was seating third seat in front everyone in that bus was not happy

The bus was on time. Had no idea the bus would continue on picking up people on the way... The driver was speeding but the movie was good.

2 stars because the on board toilet couldn't be closed and the stench kept me up. it was terrible! Also my seat couldn't be shifted downward for me to be in a better sleeping position.
