These red bus are found all over Karnataka in India. They are not Volvo by the way . The redbus company is just an online bus ticket vendor like thousands in India . The article paints wrong picture of India. Nobody charges money depending on your desperation , almost all hotels have rate list or menu for food, Nobody in India travels in bus for over 12 hrs and rare cases above 12 hrs. In fact buses usually don't operate such routes. In karnataka , Bangalore is the capital, Govt sells bus tickets online. Cities are crowded and there is problem of civic responsibilities on part of people. But its safe and one can easily get around and if you are smart and have basic common sense you will enjoy India.
