On the way to Hospet from Bangalore, I chose the semi-luxury/ Non-AC bus from the state corporation. It was a total disaster! Started late, conductor smoking, had to fight for my reserved seats, the driver was reckless! As soon as I reached Hospet, I cancelled my return journey and booked Volvo bus (state corporation). It was such a relief! The road at some places is a little bumpy- so please take a Volvo bus. It's your best bet! Of course you do get blankets and a bottle off water!

It was a one in the night and was a night journey and the coach we boarded is relatively good (sleeper class). And I guess, railway put good coaches to travel significant places. One of my co-passenger travelling with family had a bad experience with Hijras/Eunuchs. Railways should not encourage begging or any such activities.
