After 37 years on South African roads, Greyhound and Citiliner bus services are closing indefinitely…
This is according to a statement posted by the company on Wednesday afternoon. According to the company, services will run until 14 February. Anyone who has already booked tickets for future dates will be refunded.
The company did not give any indication as to the reason for its termination of services. For almost four decades passengers have enjoyed trips on the luxury bus service and its other vehicles from Cape Town to Durban and all around the country.
“Every year we transport 804 293 passengers over 25 million km of road, traveling across a comprehensive network of Southern African tar,” states the company website.
Many are speculating that the coronavirus pandemic could have been the last nail in the coffin for the service. While in lockdown, South Africans were not allowed to travel between provinces. Now that restrictions are lifted, very few have the spare cash for travel.
“It has been our pleasure connecting you across Southern Africa for the past 37 years. Thank you to all our passengers for your continued support,” said the statement from the company.
