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.

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.

Namhla C.18 February 2020 | 

Good bus and we arrived on time

Siliziwe M.17 February 2020 | 

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.

Zandile S.10 February 2020 | 

The seat was adjustable, it was very bad seating straight for 12 hours and the drivers were so rude, not willing to help.

Lutho S.5 February 2020 | 

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.

Buyiselwa S.7 January 2020 |

Prescious Putuma T.5 January 2020 | 

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..
