The staff was fine, bus was on time. There was just no ablution facilities in the bus and we only stopped once for a break of 15 mins. There was also no visible sanitizer.
Not happy at all
Safe, affordable , reliable
I always travel with intercape buses and I never get disappointed with their service.
The staff at the office was so friendly and helpfull , but the bus drywers was not friendly at all. The bus was late more than 3 hours. Drugs was on the bus .
I always travel with intercape mainline never on the budget around the cities never again
From my exprience with the other buses that I have used Citiliner Plus is definitely the best. We arrived on time, we departed on time. The driver was driving well also there wasn't any compications with our luggage. Wow!!!
I would definitely recommend anyone to use the bus! The whole trip was amazing and safe.
Very comfortable and reliable
I was very sceptical to travel because of the covid. Intercape made travelling easy and took all measures to ensure safety of passenger. I am satisfied with their overall service.
They were very professional
Good customer care
Generally good but there was no wifi nor any entertainment on the bus as advertised.
Ilike intercape busses ialways travel with them
The service was good except for few thing
The trip was not bad
Too many stops
Good bus and we arrived on time
I booked my ticket for Citiliner plus but I was put in the old busses. There was no place to charge, the isle was very narrow and people kept bumping into each other. The seats weren’t comfortable at all. The price of my ticket did not meet the bus I got. And this is unusual because I booked the same bus going to PE from Cape Town and it was perfect.
The seat was adjustable, it was very bad seating straight for 12 hours and the drivers were so rude, not willing to help.
Firstly I booked sleep liner and endup in budget liner don't know how.and that was unacceptable .secondly no one told me that the bus will only pickup at greenaches and not at Intercape central.and was waiting there trying to call to get some answers and numbers for people who can able to assist me but was told that on their system is showing that pickup is only greenaches while on my ticket showing port Elizabeth only ..was so disappointed but luckily bus was very late so I did manage to get there on time.
Excellent bt your chairs r too small can't relax da person on da bq complains alot
The bus was leaking most of the seats were wet.. And it was noisy.. I dont want to lie Greyhound is my bus but this time around I was disappointed..
Safe, dependable and affordable
We paid a higher price for a bus with wifi, and there was no wifi available.
I am very happy ,but only for that the bus was 30min late in Uitenhage .
I am happy with Intercape drivers except that the bus was late
I Love intercape best bus for me
Good and caring drivers
