Adhered to the time schedule. Neat and clean bus. Journey was comfortable. I recommend the journey. Arrival time to Masulipatnam is very comfortable (5.00 am). On board movies were played. AC is ok. The bus was a semi sleeper bus and overall a good option. But if you can get a train ticket (Masulipatnam express) that is always a better option because of the comfortable sleep we can have in a train
