Peter Abrahams has been driving buses for the past 45 years and counting.
Speaking to CapeTalk's John Maytham, Abrahams says bus driving started as a means to put food on the table for his family but over the years he has grown to love what he does.
He has experienced a lot of changes throughout his career from driving buses which were open at the back in the 70's to driving buses with power steering and the introduction of bus lanes!
