We wait and wait for buses

Sunday World - - Opinion -

DEAR Putco

Your buses are al­ways full to the rafters, mostly late (or they don’t pitch at all), and we need rain­coats even in­side the bus.

People from Protea Glen ex­ten­sions 11 and 12 are strug­gling with Four­ways buses to and from work.

Please have some buses start­ing from the Tshep­isong area via Ler­a­tong Hospi­tal. Scores of com­muters wait for buses com­ing from Protea, and be­cause these buses are al­ready full they no longer stop to pick up pas­sen­gers.

The same hap­pens in Florida, Main Reef Road and Al­bertina Sisulu Drive.

Buses com­ing from Rand­burg and Sand­ton also just pass by be­cause they’re al­ways full.

Then there are the rude driv­ers who think they own the buses. But we pay to be on those buses – we ’ re not hitch­hik­ers.

Then comes Easter, and people flock to their church on those buses.

Other com­muters are left stranded and frus­trated, though they have paid for the en­tire month. This is just not on. Learn to serve the masses with pride and ded­i­ca­tion. Don’t take ad­van­tage of poor people who can’t af­ford to drive them­selves. Mandla Ja­cob Tsha­bal­ala
