Eagle liner is thee most unreliable transportation I’ve ever took. Drivers are rude, covid 19 regulations were bot followed, no masks on passangers, bus was too full even their luggage was inside the bus. We had no rights what so ever we couldn’t choose our sits nor have enough toilet breaks without worrying about being left behind because your staff doesn’t even check us. There are cockroaches , the bus is unhygienic, people were drunk making the sober uncomfortable
I'll never travel with illula bus again, Drivers don't give direction as to stops and when and for how long people must go to bathrooms or shops. Our driver was the worse people were crying in that bus because the speed that he was driving in was bad. The bus had a problem we were stuck for about 30min out of nowhere. Nothing was just ryt about my trip with ilula. Bad bad bad
Worst experience this time around. The bus was late and it broke down. There was no updates or clear communication with regards to getting help. I missed work the next day and ended up hiking cause i had to attend a meeting the next day. We literally slept at a garage in graaff reinet. The next day communication was better but still it took the entire day to get help
Indeed I had an amazing experience with Intercape bus service I mean everything was just perfect just besides that, if the staff can use universal language to accommodate all and maybe also do announce when getting to a pickup or drop off point, other than that all was and is super!
My bags were put in the Cape Town station section. I asked the driver if he can open so i can get my bags when we arrived at Bellville. He said they cant open it at Bellville it can only open at Cape Town. Of which i am not sure if he was telling the truth or not, when i went back to explain to him that its my first time in Cape Town and i didnt know but i had to get off at Bellville he was very rude and didnt even listen to me and said theres nothing he has to explain and he already told me. Dont know the drivers name but he was tall big bodied and was wearing spectacles. He needs to learn how to talk properly with customers, reason why I didnt answer back with the same attitude he gave me is not because im afraid of him.
