    Greetings to SETC. I take SETC service while commuting to Vaillankani because the time suits my purpose. I appreciate its punctuality. But would suggest for such long distance travel please consider to introduce better buses with good and clean seating. If you introduce a/c buses definitely many passengers would prefer that.

    My last trip Trivandrum to Veilankanni was on Sept. 15th 2017 and returned on 17th evening 4.35pm bus. Both the buses the sliding windows were stuck. seats very poor and so much of discomfort faced in sitting throughout the journey which I feel all could be taken into care where there are lots of passengers prefer SETC service.

    Looking forward for a better understanding and improved service from SETC very soon.

    Regards
    Immalda M. Manual.
