++ Great

Penny D.April 3, 2018 | Timeliness: 3 | Staff: 4 | 

* Buses clean and comfortable * The driving was smooth and kept to the bus speed limit. * The trip to Cape Town was 1 hour 45 mins late; where as the return trip was nearly 1 hour 45 mins too early. * Drivers need to communicate more with passengers about stops that are being made especially for first timers. * The Recordings of the Christian material were good but poorly implemented by staff - they don't appear to know how to operated the system or check that they are playing appropriate material; e.g. The trip just after Easter the material should have been Resurrection related, instead they were playing Christmas material * The sleep liner buses are very comfortable; these should be available for trips to and from Cape Town:- the trip down was an ordinary bus * No information was available about the cold box that was on board or the coffee machine (that didn't work) on the sleep liner. * No information was given about usb charging facilities available.

Good can do better

Nhamo Macmauren A.March 12, 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 1 | 

The bus was very clean and neat, smelling fresh even the toilets were clean and odourless. The cooling system was great. Your drivers were very smart in their black and white uniforms. Their driving skills were just perfect they drove us safely to cape town, very courteuos we were in good hands.

Tina A.February 7, 2018 | Timeliness: 4 | Staff: 4 | 

Bus had mechanical problems. Arrived in Cape Town about 3.5 hours late. Tickets should have been discounted or meals should have been offered to make up for the inconvenience! Also air conditioner wasn't properly working on top deck. It was blowing warm air around. The USB charging port didn't work for the last 3 rows on right side of top level. Two cockroaches crawling on floor of top level.

Tobi D.February 5, 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 4 | 

Great! Would love options for food.

Genene A.January 10, 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 3 | 

I wasn't happy that my kids weren't sitting where I could see them in plane view.

Dario S.December 25, 2017 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

For using them the first time it was a very pleasant, comfortable and professional experience. I will be using them again for my travels.

Litlhare Miki Calextinah S.December 14, 2017 | Timeliness: 4 | Staff: 4 |

Bus Travel Tips

Meet and talk to locals at the bus stations while traveling from Johannesburg to Cape Town.There is no better way to get inside travel information while exploring a new city than to go straight to its people.

Much more than a mere vehicle taking you from Johannesburg to Cape Town, riding the bus will expose you to some of most stunning panoramas while enroute to your final bus stop.

Buses are energy-efficient. Carrying a passenger over 100 kms by coach only takes 0.6-0.9 liters of gas. Compare that to the 2.6 liters required by high-speed train, 6.6 liters by airplane and 7.6 liters by gas-powered car, and it's clear that the bus is a more environmentally-conscious option for your bus transportation from Johannesburg to Cape Town.

Make a music playlist for your bus ride from Johannesburg to Cape Town, and enjoy the scenery to tunes from your own personal soundtrack.

Did you know?

The Superbus, created by a Dutch engineer is the world's fastest bus with 250 km/h. Too bad it's only a prototype for now.

The average number of passengers on a coach bus is 32 meaning that a bus could replace a minimum of at least 30 cars!

The word 'bus' is an abbreviation of 'omnibus" which means 'for all' in Latin as buses were meant to be transportation for everybody.
