"I am traveling from plett to east london. First my bus was late. Then when I get into the bus, the driver has absolutely no friendliness and was extremely rude. When we stopped and desperately needed to use the rest room, as the driver was trying to sort out a passenger, i asked him if i could please go use the rest room, he was so rude and aggressive and irritated behaviour towards me. I am not a very happy customer of yours, a driver is suppose to make you feel safe and comfortable... THIS driver however, gives me nothing but unprofessional and unpleasant behaviour. I would appreciate it if you could maybe revise this driver and his position at your company. The alarm of your speeding in your busses keeps going off on a very regular basis too.. this is such an unpleasant experience. Sadly i already bought my return ticket.."

"Why is thier no coffee on any other drinks a available on the bus ? And maybe chips and sweets to buy will be nice. At every star stop the shops is so crowded sometimes you have to get back to the bus before you had time to buy some items at the fast food or shops then The toilet is usually smelling extremely bad when one travel to Cape Town and sometimes the staff only tells us the toilet water is finished. It's no pleasant trip if you sit near the toilets"
