Autopax buses to resume services in Mamelodi after Tshwane unrest
The Prasa subsidiary suspended services after 19 of their buses were torched during the Tshwane unrest.
The Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (Prasa) subsidiary suspended services after 19 of their buses were torched following the African National Congress (ANC)'s announcement of Thoko Didiza as a mayoral candidate for the capital.
Vadi says over the next three months there will be a reduced number of buses in Mamelodi until they replace the vehicles lost in the unrest.
"For the best, management will resume operations of the 55 buses but 13 shifts will be not be operational."
Passengers who had bought their tickets for the month of June and couldn't use them due to the disruption of services will have to get them stamped at any Prasa office for them to remain valid over the next three weeks.
Acting Prasa CEO Bongani Kupe says the parastatal will have to foot the bill of around R30 million for the 19 busses that were torched last month.
