Complaint Review: ACR Coach
ACR Coach547 Mayhew Rd. Starkville, Mississippi United States of America
ACR Coach additional address listed at 547 Old Highway 12 Starkville, MS 39759 Stinky/unsanitary bus rides Starkville, Mississippi
In response to complaints about the stopped up/stinky toilet, the bus company employees were initially unhelpful and blamed the problem on the way the girls used the bus. However, the flush mechanism did not work at all. We pointed out that we did not understand how a stoppage in the bus toilet could cause the flush mechanism not to work.
The girls were forced to ride overnight with the unclean toilet, which eventually began to leak. Some of the bus riders in the back became queasy from the smell. The bus was forced to stop multiple times for unscheduled restroom breaks, which put us behind schedule for our tours in DC.
In Washington DC, the company initially said they could not repair the toilets. Then when multiple complaints began coming in, they did finally clean the toilets so that our trip home began with relatively clean toilets. They made an announcement about the toilets, stating that they were in proper working order, explaining to the girls that no paper products whatsoever were to go into the toilet (including toilet paper!) and asking travellers to refrain from complaining. Prior to departing DC, when I checked the clean toilet, the flush mechanism was still not working at all. Once again, during the ride home, the bus began to stink.
I know from talking to other passengers that at least one other bus, of the 4 chartered for our trip, had the same problem with stench coming from the toilet. I believe that this must be some kind of health code violation to travel in an overnight bus with toilets that do not flush. At any rate, it makes for an extremely unpleasant trip - so do not book any trips in which ACR Coach will be providing transportation!
