No direct bus, our bus had a mechanical breakdown we had to stand at the garage station which resulted in the time arrival prediction being late by 2 hours. The bus has no toilets for long distance busses this is insane.
The stuff I so unprofessional, the set up is chaotic and the stuff does not know what's happening. My bus was suppose to leave at 5pm but it only left 8pm I had to wait for 3 hours in the cold weather. And it was suppose to get to Bloemfontein at 23:30h but got there at 1:00 am. Very disappointed worse experience ever
We were stuck in Johannesburg for more than 2hours. There was not even single reason provided why we had to wait for more than 2hours. We phoned the customer care they just said we should be patient. Am not using Eagle Liner again.
I am very disappointed with the Eldo coaches service. Firstly, we derpated from Pretoria Station late. Secondly, we waited more than 2 hours for a mechanic and there was no sign of the mechanic. We had to use another bus. The other bus was extremely cold. They turned on the air-conditioner in a very cold weather. We were all freezing an babies were crying none stop.
