CAPE TOWN - Trade union alliance Cosatu gave Golden Arrow Bus Services management a week to provide it with a plan to combat crime.

Over the past few weeks, there have been several robberies on Golden Arrow buses.

Cosatu said that if Golden Arrow failed to respond, the next would be to launch a campaign against the company which would include a class-action lawsuit.

In a meeting this week, Cosatu suggested that panic buttons and cameras be installed on buses.

In response, Golden Arrow spokesperson Bronwen Dyke-Beyer said: “We would like to clarify that we welcome suggestions and value possible partnerships with any organisations who could assist us in addressing the very serious issue of crime on our busses.”
