Damn! I have used KPN many times from Nagerkoil to bangalore and vice versa. These guys waste much of the time in loading & unloading parcels allover the way and do a rash drive to adjust the time. What to do?

KPN Drivers are rude as hell.Their Buses stops at very small town in Tamil Nadu to load & Unload parcels when you are sleeping.If is not unusuall for a passenger to wake-up in mid-sleep on hearing the loud thud-thud noise of loading/unloading.

It is highhandedness and total disrepect to the passengers travelling by KPN. They behave rudely, never arrange alternate arrangements when their bus breaks down, and leave the passengers on the road. It is time the government cancel their permit to run this business as it caused a heavy loss of lives.

KPN is the worst in time schedule as well as customer dealings. They behave like it is some kind of charity from their side to carry us in the bus. Rude staff and bad, unclean seats. I stopped travelling with KPN.

Stupid guys, KPN has no respect for passengers and their drivers are too rude.

Please never travel with them. They are fit only as a parcel service

Worst of the Worst!

They even charge higgggh compared to their competes like Parveen[best price, top speeds, clean interiors & of all friendly drivers], SRM[clean interiors, speeds, time & bit rude drivers], Conti[best price, top speeds, clean interiors & of all friendly drivers]

Parveen Merce & Snooze bus [Corona Sleeper] to TVM takes only 12-13hrs max including a round trip to Pondicherry!

Conti Isuzu A/c[Rs.550] & Volvo B7R[Rs.650] takes jus 8-9 hrs frm Chenani to Coimbatore and friendly crew whereas KPN Sleeper[Old Trash, 1995 PY Regn.s with torn seats & stinking blankets with all engine "duuuuuuuuuurrrrrrrrrrr" sound for the whole night - Rs. 715]

KPN is nomore "Knowing People's Needs" it is all hell... "Killing People's Needs" - should they stop themselves or people ll drain off them!!

We'll shed condolences to those pax and hold up high REDS against this K[iller]PN Travels!
