Golden Arrow Bus Services has raised concern that its buses are becoming a target of crime.

It is reported that commuters on Golden Arrow buses had been robbed 20 times in just four months.

Golden Arrow public relations manager, Bronwyn Dyke-Beyer says the company has repeatedly brought this matter to the attention of the government to assist in providing security service to commuters.

We approached JP Smith to see how the railway police model or something similar could be used for our services and we are hopeful that something positive will come out of it.

The bus service if offering a R50 000 reward for any information that will lead to the arrest of the perpetrators.

We are looking at installing cameras, panic buttons, and going undercover. But it is not as easy as just installing cameras. We have to look into who is going to attend to those cameras and what happens when a panic button is pressed.

Bronwyn Dyke-Beyer, Public relations manager - Golden Arrow

We are doing everything we can and we are cooperating in every way we can with the police.
