The bus left Mthatha late, it stopped for a long time to many pick up arrears. It did not stop for us to buy food on the usual food stores.

I feel the bus wasn't in acondition to take passengers as the window was broken they used a cardboard to cover the window and it went out while we were on the road and even I be dropped off by the garage as I was late for work driver refused I feel it was unfair unreasonable as the bus was very late and people complained of feeling cold because of the window they had to turn heater high I could not breath properly as I was seating third seat in front everyone in that bus was not happy

The bus was on time. Had no idea the bus would continue on picking up people on the way... The driver was speeding but the movie was good.

2 stars because the on board toilet couldn't be closed and the stench kept me up. it was terrible! Also my seat couldn't be shifted downward for me to be in a better sleeping position.
