Johannesburg - The wildcat strike by Gautrain bus drivers is over, according to Bombela Concession Company spokesperson Errol Braithwaite.

"Gautrain bus drivers have agreed to return to work tomorrow [Thursday]," announced Braithwaite.

On Wednesday Braithwaite said in a statement that a wildcat strike by Gautrain bus drivers in Johannesburg had resulted in the suspension of bus services from Park, Rosebank, Sandton, Midrand, and Rhodesfield station.

"There will be no bus services on any of these routes for the rest of the day [Wednesday]," said Braithwaite.

Braithwaite urged commuters to follow Gautrain on social media so that service information could be distributed as quickly as possible.

Train services were unaffected, said Braithwaite.
