12 Reviews
HI/ HELLO, this is DR.RAJA.S here... im going to share a worst part of my life travelling from chennai to madurai in MADURAI MEENAKSHI TRAVELS... Had booked a bus ticket in REDBUS.IN 1 month before for travelling on 02.11.2010 and the cost of the ticket was RS.720/ INR.. i thought it will be ok as we have booked a ticket in a good bus and we are going to travel in a good manner.. they had given the boarding point as koyambedu, but i have to head to koyambedu from kelambakkam the travelling time would be more than 2.30 hours, so i hd called the respective travelling agents of madurai meenakshi regarding the boarding point.. they said call me tomorrow we can arrange for that.. the next day i called them and they got my number and then said they vil call me back.. but they didnt.. again i called and they said cum to perungalathur at 10.00 pm (my boarding time at koyambedu was 8.30 pm). happily i started and reached perungalathur at 8.30pm.. there STARTS!!! i called three times, they attended the call and asked me that the bus is coming sir, u can catch it.. but to my surprise there is no bus like that.. then i called 10 times, they didnt attended the call.. then i called from sum other number, he attendd d call and said sir, i vil arrange sum seat in NATIONAL TRAVELS.. he gave me the drivers number, the result is nil balance in my mobile, i called more than 5 times, he said sir it will take another 1 and half hours.. i was fed up.. i was still standing in the road.. after nearing perungalathur the driver said, sir no seat in my bus too.. go n enquire at the booking office nu.. i went to the POLICE STATION near by, but the cop said, sir (naanga enna panrathu) vat can we do? VAT A RESPONSE?? again i called, he didnt attended the call for mre than 5 times, then again i called from sum other number which is mine only.. he attended the call and said sir wait for another hour, our volvo is coming and the tickt is Rs.1300/.. as u had booked already u can avail by paying an extra 100 rupees.. itz ok i accepted.. THE BUS CAME AT 11.45PM.. i entered and asked where is the seat nu, at last at last at last at last.... ya the last seat on the right row, A/C bus too.. i was a ROBOT in that seat, i cant able too stretch my leg even to a small extent... it was paining severly.. ok i adjusted, but vat a pushback seat, it is VERTICAL 90 DEGREE.. how dare they are doing lik this... just think of my 8 hours travell... i was in a hectic tension, dnt know vat to do.. even i asked my dad can v file any complaint nu, my dad said no no, they are rich and they are politicians too, dnt waste ur time.. mind ur work nu...

im asking, vat for they are earning lik this.. and this is with the support of government and others like local police, etc.. VIL IT DIGEST!!!! I PAID 820 RUPESS, vat is the result.. vil the government take any step... ABSOLUTELY NO!!! V R THE SUFFERERS.... tis is the story of a DOCTOR, vat a layman vil do...

my suggestion, dont go for net booking and all.. n the important thing is dnt go for MADURAI MEENAKSHI TRAVELS.. i dont know about other travelss...

but to my surprise, SRM TRAVELS was very very very good... there was a person standing at perungalathur to help the passengers boarding and to move the luggage, very kind.. WORTH FOR MONEY!!! i think jus a smile is enogh fr everythng.. hereafter i vil try for TRAIN or SRM TRAVELS only...

Madurai Meenkshi travels is worst in service.. the drivers are too rude even shout at customer if we ask anything. management is worst to the of the worst experiences i had travelling with them.
I agree with you...
Everything is worst with that Madurai Meenakshi Travels.

Bus Comfort: worst ( no space to keep legs in Volvo bus, push back seat falls down in persons behind us)
Driver: We meet with an accident. Driver hit the median of road in high speed.
Service: Worst as you said

As my parents are old, I booked in Volvo bus. I thought they will have a nice journey. But they hurt heavily by that bus. Volvo bus is like old government bus. Rexin seat covers. No space to keep legs freely.

Such travels should be banned

Dear Karthik. You are right. They are such a stupid travels. Getting refund of rs 555 is not enough for that. For the tension caused to you and made you to wait at the mid night the concern should give you proper response along with rs 555.
S something do against that humanoids
I would like to share a very bitter experience which happened to me last weekend. I had booked a bus ticket from chennai to trichy in Madurai Meenakshi travels which is a Push back A/C bus and scheduled to board at 11:59PM in perungalathur. Ater reaching Perungalathur ten mins prior to boarding time I called up to the operator number printed on the ticket to get the details on where exactly i need to stand, but i was taken in by a complete surprise saying my bus was cancelled. It was not informed to me about the cancellation earlier and exactly at midnight I was standing on the road with option of no seats left in any other bus. There was a function on the nearby Peerakarani church and the crowd was overflowing like diwali and pongal time and the operator sitting on a 4*4 room cooly replied saying there are lot many buses available to trichy and I can catch anyone of them. Since the crowd was also very high all the private buses were demanding too high fares and after waiting for more than one hour I was forced to to pay 600 INR for a non AC semi sleeper bus which was not worth it. The operators can atleast show bit of concern by calling the respective persons over the phone and to inform about the cancellation. In the recent past I see the last time cancellation has become very common and they have the default reason saying A/C is not working or the bus in breakdown for some other silly reasons. My simple question is if the buses are breakdown why do you show the option of booking bus tickets on those and making people as fools??
Dear Everybody,
I also felt a very bad experience with Madurai Meenakshi Travels.
Please tell what shall we do.
Please contact if required.

Madurai meenatchi travels is Very worst travels. If u want to reach your destination exact time don't book the tickets in this travels.
madurai meenakshi travels is very very worst .i booked a sleeper ticket but they told that bus was breakdown sir we arranged a multi alex adjust with it nu i accepted the departure time was 1PM but they stared it after 2:45 that time also we forced and shout the driver and agency after that they move the bus i booked that bus for my sister she reached chennai @ 10:15 then she booked a own cab to reach her hostel that late ni8
The bus condition is too worst and this is considered to be the worst journey in my life. The trip was from Chennai to Madurai and in ulunthurpet bypass, the bus got sudden breakdown and it took one hour and more to do bring the mechanic. But finally there was no AC and it's too suffocating. We reached for customer care and they behaved very rude. The amount we paid was also not even refundable atleast a half also. Worst service don't try for even a emergency purpose also.
