Hop-on hop-off in Gauteng
The red double-decker buses many South Africans would associate with the City of Cape Town have made their debut in Johannesburg this month.
Gauteng MEC of infrastructure, Qedani Mahlangu, announced that Gauteng’s first hop-on hop-off bus service would be launched on January 15.
“Tourists will soon be able to jump on an iconic red open-top bus and explore some of the most famous tourist locations in Johannesburg,” Mahlangu now reveals.
She adds: “These buses will allow visitors to explore the city’s history in a safe and convenient way, making it more tourist friendly.”
The buses, which operate in 100 cities on six continents around the world, will offer commentary in 17 different languages. Tickets went on sale at the end of last week.
