I have experienced a very poor punctuality from Rathimeena Travels last night. The bus expected to arrive at boarding point Pallavaram at 11. 15 Pm but it arrived at very late at 12. 05 Am. Also there was no response from travels when we tried calling them to know about the status. Both mobile numbers and land-line were switched off..
Really it was a frustrating moment to wait for 1 hr. Where none bothered to update the passengers about the delay.
Lengthy travel time, unknowingly booked the bus which travels through the State Highway among the en route towns (Travellers from down south to Pondichery beware of the route of bus). Though I didn't feel the impact due to night time travel and comfortable sleeper beds.
A group of 15 members were travelled to Velankanni around 1 pm. We had settled up to 4th row from last. On that day, there was a heavy rain. We chatted and enjoying the scenery around us while moving in the bus. At sometime later, bus suddenly stopped due to the tree fallen on the road. It's a one way path and it takes around 2 hours to clear the road. We all stepped out of the bus and enjoyed with the river aside and took many photographs with the nature around us. Finally we had an awesome day with lot of good memories.
Punctual and safe with enough stops. Hygienic. No fear in U pin turnings. Good sightseeing. Water and blankets were provided. Didn't made us feel tired in travelling a long distance. Driver was very cautious of kids and other passengers. Seats were comfortable and bus was very neat.
Service of Rathimeena as usual is top class and get your ticket and have your seat and enjoy. No worries, no issues until your destination, excellent seat comfort that means worth the value of money. To many boarding points is feasible.
It was a joy ride for us and we enjoyed the scenic beauty. But the first class cabin is a bit congested. And it could have been much better. Well maintained heritage line. The journey from Kalka to Shimla is about 5 and half hrs with wonderful views. There are about 103 tunnels. There are a number of toy trains, a lot of people travelling to Shimla from Kalka. But during holiday season please book the tickets well in advance.
The bus was 1 hour late and we got the worst seat. The seat cover was also not up-to the mark. The bus smelt and we dint like the experience. The holiday spirit got vanished after we saw the bus. It was decent from outside but the staff were not at all co-operative.
