Thousands of commuters who rely on bus transportation to and from Mamelodi are now relieved as the A Re Yeng bus service takes over routes previously operated by Autopax.
Autopax took over operations in Mamelodi in 2015 after Putco withdrew. It announced two months ago it would not renew it's contract.
MMC for roads and transport Sheila Lynn Senkubuge says 30 buses are now operating on the route.
When we found out that Autopax will be pulling out of Mamelodi, we said rather than allowing that gap to happen let us take these buses that are standing and not being utilized, let's put them on the route in Mamelodi so that the public can have transport.— Sheila Lynn Senkubuge, MMC for roads and transport
It is not the rapid transit, the rapid transit is still on it's way to Mamelodi.— Sheila Lynn Senkubuge, MMC for roads and transport
We have a mobile that is going around Mamelodi, it either parks at Balebogeng or it parks at Denneboom, commuters can buy their tickets on the bus as well.— Sheila Lynn Senkubuge, MMC for roads and transport
