Pros: The trip was extremely good and I appreciate the fact that your bus has a toilet and related hygienic facilities while other public transport companies have not. Cons: 1. To reduce the price a little bit 2. To advertise/ marketing campain using all of your means so that people could know about the existance of your company. People only know the "Cold shot" company; I remember when i bough a ticket on internet i was searching only Cold Shot; I and all my friends do not know your company and the location of your office yet you are the best transport company having a very good buses and quality services. Tips: To continue enjoying travelling with Red Arrow.
