Very disappointed because even the charging stations were not working my phone switched off and I couldn't make calls. It's very sad because I booked that bus because of the charging station only to find out it's not working😭😭😭
We had rude driver who drove nonsense a moment we left Jozi.
Around midnight I heard a passenger seating in front row warning him that his sleeping & driving on the on coming traffic side, then I stood to check, saw a bright car light in front of us warning him to move from its side.
I immediately called the Head office to ask why we have a tired driver to drive at night? He was called back & denied that he is sleeping on the wheel.
I spoke the passager in front & he confirmed that the head office did call the driver & he promised that he won't sleep, he will gard the driver.
After he call the driver switched of the heater & put in air condition, the whole night passengers begged for him to turn on the heater but in vain.
We were ice cold until the sun rise to warm us up.
I'm not sure how the company scrutinize thise they put people's lives & care under. But my experience does sit well of the company choices.
We had witnessed a sleeping bus driver killing more than 30 people & we still under such caliber driving or being put under care of passengers.
I will refrain from using the bus so as most passengers that were there.
A bus that was supposed to arrive in Cape town at 12:30 but got here at 15:30
I was suppose to leave Joburg at 6pm, the bus arrive at 7pm. The bus was an hour late and we were standing in a long queue waiting for the bus. The staff did not even inform us regarding this matter. People were very angry and i will never use Eldo coaches again. Im very dissatisfied.
The bus was extremely late and there was no communication with the passengers as to what was happening. When the bus got to Bloemfontein it was even worse as the Adim was not done well a staff member named Tshidi in Bloemfontein was also very rude.
