Johannesburg - Drivers operating feeder buses to the Gautrain agreed to go back to work on Friday, a few hours after going on strike, said the Gautrain operating company Bombela.

"All buses are fully operational," Bombela spokesperson Errol Braithwaite said.

Some drivers embarked on an unprotected strike in Johannesburg on Friday morning, amid wage negotiations.

Earlier in the week, Rea Vaya bus drivers left commuters stranded for four days around Johannesburg.

They demanded the banning of labour brokers, a review of their code of conduct, that senior staff members choose their shifts, and that the union be introduced during the induction of new workers.

The Rea Vaya bus drivers were expected back at work on Friday.
