eThekwini sorry about bus strike

2014-01-03 00:00

ETHEKWINI municipality has apologised to the bus commuters who were left stranded after the operator Transnat Africa ceased its operation since Wednesday.

Municipality’s head of communication Tozi Mthethwa said their operator was facing a problem but failed to specify what the challenges were.

But it is believed that the bus strike has been sparked by a dispute between management and staff.

She said the city’s public transport including the Durban Metro and Mynah buses were affected.

“We do apologise that some people were unable to travel to their destinations and especially the beaches, as you can see how packed they are,” Mthethwa said, promising to work hard to resolve the matter.

“We hope that everything will be back to normal today [Friday],” she added.

Transnat Africa could not be reached for comment yesterday.
