Lehlohonolo G.30 November 2020 | 

They were offline the whole day before the trip , there was no alternative to communicate with them, I could not afford to exchange ticket time before 2t hours , all the numbers were not working .The penalty I got finally at the bus station was to purchase a new ticket to get a new early ticket, I had to loose my money for the first booking although I did all as per picy before 24 hours expired, e mails were also not going through

I can't complain but was late because of road accident that happened in N3

Andile S.24 November 2020 | 

Please write the accurate time on the ticket

It was my first time utilizing Eldo. Perhaps it is premature to make conclusions, but was not happy that it was late, as time is the major piece in deciding which bus to take. It is not usually the price for me as a customer. I just wanted to get to jhb on time. And being 1 hour late has a huge impact in terms of planning.

Actual on my way to the bus station I was involved in an accident taxi tyre bust, I got there late , I asked the lady by the reception to put me on the next bus she said no I have to buy another ticket.i found that very stupid because it's the same company why cant they help us if we are in trouble. The next bus was still the same price. Just different times.
