I did not expect the bus to be on time as stated on the site this bus was 2.5 hrs late which is just way too long. While the seats were comfortable the bus was not very clean and I saw a cockroach by where I was resting my head on the window.

Bus was 40 minutes late. Some people were very noisy and made the seats dirty after they had left. It started raining during the ride and the roof leaked in a few places. Some of us got a little wet.

The bus left 20 minutes late. Shortly after the air conditioning stopped working. It seemed that the air con would die when the bus was running. The bus then stopped on the side of the highway and alternative buses were organised for the passengers. The driver was stressed but he remained helpful. Several hours of waiting followed and I arrived at my destination almost 5 hours later than I should have.
