Rea Vaya passengers advised to use alternative transport

Various Rea Vaya buses are not running today due to a strike by bus drivers.

The affected routes are T1, C1, C2 C3, C4, C5 and T3.

The City of Joburg yesterday issued a notice of the disruption to services “due to labour action by bus drivers for services that are operated by Pioneer Transport [PioTrans]”, spokesperson Benny Makgoga said yesterday.

“PioTrans management is addressing the situation. Passengers are advised to use alternative transport and Rea Vaya will be able to provide feedback at appropriate times.”

The strike affected the T1 along Soweto Highway, C1 from Dobsonville to Ellispark, C3 for the inner city and Braamfontein as well as feeder routes from Naledi, Protea Glen, Jabuvu, Mofolo and Eldorado Park.

It also affected the T3 from Thokoza Park to Library Gardens via Auckland Park, C2 Indingilza to UJ Soweto, C4 to Cresta, C5 to Florida North as well as feeder routes.

The F6 Lea Glen to Bosmont, F7 Fleurhof/Amalgam to Bosmont, F8 Westbury to Greymont, F9 Mapetla to Thokoza Park, F10 Lakeview to Pimville, F11 Yeoville to Library Gardens and F12 Parktown to Library Gardens were fully operational and were not affected by the strike.
