BRT is super, but City of Joburg lags behind

AS PART of Transport month, my colleague Paul Willemburg suggested that we take a ride on the Rea Vaya BRT. Another member and some DA staff joined us.

The BRT staff are very professional and the tickets are value for money. Who can take their own car to Soweto from town for only R5?

My only gripe is with the City of Joburg that can't add the finishing touches to the BRT that would make the city truly world class.

We got off at the last station and as we stepped off the bus to cross at the pedestrian crossing, another passenger nearly fell into the uncovered water-mains hole.

Joburg needs to clean the city completely, and not just piecemeal.
