I'm very disappointed, I booked the bus for me and my sister to arrive at pretoria before 8am...the bus was late and staff members where not honest about what was going on, we had to find alternative transport because we had a very important appointment in pretoria. We left the station around 01:45 so we would want to be refunded please

Excellent service , I was so late and I had to run while pregnant , and I over heard 3 gentlemen , saying there's 1 person short , let's wait for few minutes , I yelled "its me its me , they gave me few minutes to calm down , welcomed me nicely in the bus and gave me a seat. It wasn't my first time using Intercape , its my favorite and I'll sure use it whenever I need to travel.

The seat alocation system per individual should be put in place to prevent one looking for a place and asking if the sit is occupied or what.
