In Mitchell’s Plain, one commuter said, trying to beat the rush, she woke up as early as 4:00AM, but to her dismay, found out hundreds more had beaten her to it.

As City Vision staffers tried to make sense of the long queues of commuters resembling a voting day, the depression on their faces belied a happy occasion, as panic had set in Oupa Dyasi is a resident of Khayelitsha, but works in Milnerton. He had waited for an hour-and-a-half for his commute.

He deemed himself lucky to have made it to work on time.

“I had heard from the news about the looming strike so I tried to be extra early to get to work and I ended up waiting more than an hour to get onto a taxi.

My biggest worry now is the bus tickets that we won’t be using for as long as the strike continues,” he said.

Golden Arrow Bus Services have indicated that passengers will have an extended use of their bus tokens during the strike.

“The value of the tickets will not be lost,” a spokesperson said on radio.
