I will not book eldo coaches in the future, the service is bad i had to wait for 3 hours for a bus, i booked for 18:30 and the bus arrived after 21:00. Bad service ever. I wouldn't not recommended it to anyone! Nxa
There was a fight because of unreserved seating arrangements. Please make seats to be reserved so that people who embark at other stops can have an opportunity to reserve their own preferred seats. Also, pls keep the buses in good conditions including ventilation.
Very disappointed I booked a bus to depart at 6h30 pm at bossman station I was taken to by a dirty bus to be dumped at Johannesburg station to wait for another bus which I waited for 2 hours and no one ever bothered to communicate with passengers as of why are we waiting in park station
Eldo coaches bus I have traveled with it but I'm not satisfied at all because the bus was late from Pretoria to Durban 2 the bus toilet were stinking very bad on the day of departure from Durban Eldo coaches staff at Durban are so rude the seats were so wet and bus was leaking because it was raining everything was just a mess but I have seen the way it was so late.
A very heart wrenching experience...nothing on the bus works from the charging pods to toilet , the staff is unprofessional and we made unnecessary stops and picked several people on the way which was dodgy and could have let to us bring hijacked , we went inside townships which delayed our trip further more because the driver had to drop off his people that he picked up on the way who were clearly not eldo coaches customers, the whole experience was dissatisfying and uncalled for . Everything about eldo coaches was a solid 0/10.
I was suppose to leave Pretoria at 9 we left Pretoria at 10pm and we had to wait 3hours before take off and now it’s 11:39am and I am still in montrose. Meaning we have been on the road for 18hours, the bus is having issues and poor driver has to fix the bus with passengers and the mechanic is trying he’s best. I advice elder to stop fully booking their buses and risking passenger with buses that are not serviced
I am very disappointed at your services. I booked a bus from Pretoria to Durban for Friday 28/10/2022, however when I got to the bus terminal to board my name was not on the list but the money was take from my account. I was then told to buy a new ticket and the time I had booked for was no longer available. I had to pay for another ticket which was very inconveniencing for me. The worse part is that the bus even came late.
Very disappointed the departure time was 18:30 but the bus arrived at 21:00 the staff didn't even bother to explain anything the passengers ended
up forcefully boarding a bus which they said was not meant for us ,ours was still on the way and it was already 3 hours late. would not recommend.
First after a longtime excited that my favorite bus is back but I was so disappointed about the experience Grayhound Cityliner is not the same anymore, instead of 19:30 ELDO coach bus came in Pretoria station at 20:00 they said we gonna get Cityliner in Jhb park station, when we enter the eldo bus first breed was the smell of the pee all over, we when we get at park station there was no bus no body is updating us what I remember we stand there till 21:45 we Left park station at 22:20 from 19:30 bus that I booked very disappointed I don't think I will ever book it again, also drivers they don't even check if passengers are happy weather was cold also the Airco was very cold.
Dirty the toilets we're smelling horrible.No air conditioning.Were put in another bus in Parkstation which took another 40 minutes to arrive. When we reach Durban nobody assisted us in off loading our luggages that course alot of chaos.
Bus came at Pretoria late and made us wait for another bus to Durban at Johannesburg station for an hour,then bus came bus then we stuck at the 1st tolerate,had to wait for assistance for 3hours,then it broke again and waited for 2 again for assistance. We were suppose to arrive In Durban at 16h15 but we arrived at 23:10pm with kids and unsure of where we were going because it was at night.My 1yr 8months paid R405 for her bus ticket, why did she pay for?
It was not a good experience, because we were taken off the bus in Johannesburg and waited for more than 1 hour 30 munites before the other bus arrived.not gonna refer someone to use your bus,not at all
I received bad experience
The bus was 3 hours late
They are disorganised They dropped us at park station without any communication we waited for three hours there(standing) when the bus arrived we were pushing each other to get inside due to miscommunication because we were stuck with different slots (7h30,9:00,9h30)passengers
