  Govmntl Bus Drivers inTamilnadu don't speak Englis
by FruitLover

Favorite thing: When using governmental bus in Tamilnadu(!!! Kerala is a different story) you have a great lack of communication problem. The driver and the conductor (and the pessangers) generally don't understand English (or any other western language), and CAN'T UNDERSTAND YOUR PRONOUNCIATION, EVEN WHEN YOU EXPRESS A NAME OF A CITY !!!
Recommended solution: Write the name on a big paper and show it to the driver and the conductor. This is not 100% guarantee, even when they answer OK with their heads.

Personal experience:
They dropped me off the bus 90 KMs from the destination (Kodaikanal, in this case), with 4 suitcases and bags, on 01:00 AM.

Review Helpfulness: 0.5 out of 5 stars
