The buses have been standing idle since 2010 because they're too big for some of the city's roads.
The Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality admits its Integrated Public Transport System (IPTS) has been beset with problems.
The R2 billion project was meant to be running since 2010, but there was little buy-in from the taxi industry.
The municipality's Mthubanzi Mniki says bus lane construction continues throughout the city.
Mniki says a committee has been set up to find a way forward for the IPTS system, adding talks with the taxi industry are at an 'advanced’ stage.
