Durban buses back on road

DURBAN'S scaled down bus service got under way yesterday as promised by new operator Transnat Africa.

About 43 of the 450 buses resumed operation in major Durban townships such as Umlazi, KwaMashu and Ntuzuma.

Transnat said the roll-out of buses would increase over the next few weeks.

Transnat chief executive Mike Jesserman said they planned to have about 100 buses on the road by the end of this week.

He said since last Friday more than 80 drivers have come to Transnat individually to apply for their jobs despite no agreement having been reached with the unions. - Sne Masuku
