Busbud Expands its Coverage in Southern Africa

Famous for its breathtaking nature, incredible wildlife, and vast open-spaces, South Africa boasts some of Africa’s most impressive landscapes. The southernmost country of Africa is also home to diverse cosmopolitan cities rich in culture, history, and art. Busbud is proud to announce its expansion in South Africa with a partnership with local bus carrier, Greyhound Citiliner. This adds to inventory from Intercape, which has been on Busbud since 2018.

About the partnership

Greyhound and Citiliner are two brands operating under the same umbrella and have inventory in the following countries: South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi, and Mozambique. With these 7 countries, travelers can now offer securely book bus tickets in 83 countries. 


Citiliner offers low-cost bus travel options, transporting half a million passengers per year over 8 million km in Southern Africa. Being cost-conscious does not mean that they’ve compromised on luxury, safety, and comfort: their coaches all have reclining seats and air-conditioning.


Greyhound transports 804 293 passengers over 25 million km each year, traveling across a comprehensive network of Southern African roads. They offer a luxurious experience with memory foam sleeper seats reclining at 150 degrees, charging ports, extra legroom, entertainment, and an on-board cabin crew. Their prices are still very attractive, making it the best low-cost luxurious travel option in South Africa.
