I have been using intercape for a long time now. And can not complain about their service the bus is alwyz on time. I guess yesterday it was because of this Corona virus thing cs we had to be checked before we get in the bus.

It must be announced that at the pickup points nonone mustn't go to shops as one person was left behind at Harrismith in the night

Phenyani D.January 7, 2020 | 

Your buses are not in good condition. The bus we travelled with was leaking and it broke down before reaching the destination. There was no communication from the driver. The driver didn't even stop at montrose for refreshments.

Can not complain everything went according

Tshepiso M.December 8, 2019 | 

First of all the waiting area is just a mess, there are flies all over the area. Staff did not update us on the bus delay. The bus got there, they asked us to go climb in, we had to wait in the rain for over 10min for someone to atleast open up the luggage space on the bus and put in out luggages. We still got into the bus, and the bus still did move for over an hour, without anyone reassuring us on what was happening. All the sits in the bus were beyond dirty, as if they were all being stepped on. And we were still expected to sit right on top of the mess. It was just the worst journey I've ever had, I least expected it on this company (Greyhound), I am very disappointed.

Everything was okey, the bus took time to leave Johannesburg and also dropped passengers in Harrismith hence it was 1 hour late to Pietermaritzburg
