Quantity of food is a challenge.
Fruit platter portion was very less.
In addition, Sandwich provided for Jain meal was cold and very salty, that I returned back.

Suggestion- Announcements must be made also in Tamil in Tamil NAdu.
Tamil instructions must be included in the safety card.
Large population know only Tamil and they will benefit from Tamil safety announcements. Thanks

I travelled from Madurai to Chennai before few months by bus(KPN travels)

1. The response from KPN travels was very good
2. The time of pickup and drop was good but not great
3. Seat was nice one.
4. Separate place was luggage is nice one.

In overall nice one and money worth travel from Madurai to Chennai through KPN travels.

Good roads and excellent driving experience. Watch for pedestrian crossing from the dividers. Few tolls towards Chennai have a big queue. Total drive time about 6 hours including one stop for a short meal. Many coffee stops on the way if needed. A good four lane road separated by a divider.
