The government buses do not usually play unbearably loud music and the drivers tend to be safer in my experience.

Private buses are ruled by profit and will often race other buses to reach a stop first. Also government bus drivers are more likely to have rested before a shift which is especially important during a night journey.

I go with a government bus wherever possible, however, Private buses are often newer and in better condition.
