Can't sit, comfortable spacing are very less. Usually, seats in AC Chair Car are well-cushioned and push-back. I found the push-back lever but there is not even 1mm gap at the back to push the backrest behind!

This seat reminded me of the last row in Quanto. It is barely enough for a person of average build like me. At 5' 8", I was just able to squeeze in and get out of it by banging my knees against the seat in front a couple of times. If I were 6' tall, I guess I would have had to go for knee replacement surgery if I managed to fit myself into that trap!

Best value for money, it's walk-able distance only from railway-station, it is located at a inner street landmark for hotel is Moiveland theater. Staff were polite and room was good.

There was no office or bus by the name of National Travels! redBus was clueless! Shama Sardar finally took all the passengers on a first come first serve basis and started the trip almost two hours late! Better to go to the Bus Stop without even booking!

A pleasant journey and we almost maintained 100 throughout except for few road patches in some places. Took about 5 hours to reach Bangalore Electronic city and 2 hours thereafter to reach the destined hotel. Though we can attribute it to lack of familiarity to the place but that is what travellers are expected to be. On return journey, could not find any decent hotel to eat after entering Brigade Road onward to Hosur Road. Settled in Hosur Adyar Anandha Bhavan for dinner without choice. So better finish your dinner in the city before getting onto the return journey.

As usual a typical train journey. Train was noisy - non-stop chatter boxes - a team of middle aged women - never had the common sense. That train leaving by 6 Am many will continue their sleep. But for my pleasant surprise the train reached 10 minutes ahead of the scheduled time.

I have booked tickets in Shama Sardar Travels but I got seat in Geepee Travels. The bus was not punctual in reaching the destination. Started at 2:15 Pm and reaching at destination was 10:45 Pm. When I ask driver that you are late 1:30 hrs to destination. He was using unprofessional words to me. Very worst behavior of the bus staff and driver.
