Residents in the east of Pretoria recently met the MMC for roads and transport to iron out issues related to poor service by Tshwane Bus Service.

Convenor Ernst Botha said he took up the issue because residents in his ward used the bus service daily.

“I was informed by residents that there has been instances when the bus had not arrived and there was unhappiness about this as they then do not have the means to get to where they need to be.”

Botha said he reported the complaints to MMC of roads and transport, Sheila Senkugube. “She brought her entire team to the meeting to address concerns that were raised by residents.”

He said plans for the way forward were discussed. “There are plans to develop an online platform in the near future for bus users to interact on. This will be used by bus users to track their bus and to see if it arrived and at what time.”

Botha said his and Senkugube’s goal was to ensure that the bus service became a first class transport service.

Botha said when active residents met the government it made for a successful and constructive meeting where concerns could be raised and addressed.

“A massive thank you goes out to residents who attended the meeting, MMC Senkugube, councillors, the strategic executive director, operations director and various other stakeholders. There is a very promising change coming in the near future. It will take the Tshwane Bus Service into the next generation.”
