Expreso Palmira Bogotá Cali recent customer reviews
At 3:00am it got extremely hot in the bus - the windows fogged, I couldn’t breathe and wanted to change clothing
in addition to the answers to your question the toilet was not flushing and there was no paper.
Very comfortable bus! Easy ride. Holiday traffic possibly caused our 3 additional hours on bus
According to multiple reviews, the bus service offers reclining seats and a working toilet on board. However, there are some negative aspects mentioned such as freezing air conditioning and loud music played by the driver all night, making it difficult to sleep. Additionally, passengers have reported bumpy rides with almost falling out of their seats due to road conditions. Some seats also lack functioning seatbelts.

Bolivariano Bogotá Cali recent customer reviews
It was 45 minutes late departure. I missed my hostel booking because I arrived too late.
A 9 hour journey became 14 hours, no tissue in the toilet, only stopped once, a horrendous experience
Good things: reclining seats, working toilet on board. The bad: freezing aircon, driver plays very loud music all night so can't sleep. Curly toads on way to Cali, very bumpy and almost fell out of seat. Some seats did not have working seatbelts.
