Deepavali holiday trip: Beware! Your weekend journey may be riddled with delays, bed bugs

Passengers travelling in a private bus on weekends and during festivals should raise concerns with operators well in advance. From delayed departures to late arrivals to being dropped off at a destination far away from the listed one while booking to bed bug infestation in sleeper coaches, these are just some of the problems that passengers of private buses are facing these days.

Buses plying between North Karnataka and Hyderabad-Karnataka region often have complaints about buses infested with insects. 

Karnataka Private Bus Operators Association says that late arrival is due to the weekend rush. "In various city corporations, if buses enter the city post 7am, they will not be allowed to stop at certain locations. The bus will be rerouted to the main bus stop. With regard to bed bugs, however, we are helpless, no matter how much we clean, the problem remains unsolved,"  said Sadananda Chatra, general secretary, Karnataka Private Bus Operators Association.
