Durban – Durban Transport buses will be back on the road on Tuesday, the eThekwini Municipality said on Monday.

The city apologised to commuters after they were left stranded after strike action that began on Thursday last week.  

eThekwini’s head of communications, Tozi Mthethwa, said buses stopped operating on July 2 when some of the drivers refused to get behind the wheel.
