Intercape should go back to the staff introducing themselves before leaving any station . As passengers we would love to know our drivers and communicate with us about our fresh stops

I booked a bus with a toilet but i was put in a toiletless bus, it was very hot, temperatures were too high up to 28 degrees at times. The price I paid was too much for that bus I did not expect that condition. No rubbish containers.

the bus departed late and arrived late in mthatha. the staff are not friendly at all. they are full of attitude. when I was asking the bus driver where my seat was, he told me that he was going to show me but then started playing around just because I was saying goodbye to my Boyfriend.

The water for flushing toilet was stinking like pure urine which made me vomit with persistent nausea from Maritzburg till I got to Mthatha,a real terrible experience.
