Bus Travel Tips
Make friends with the driver. They usually know a lot about your destination and may even recommend which side of the bus to sit on to get the best views on the road between Pietermaritzburg and Welkom!
Much more than a mere vehicle taking you from Pietermaritzburg to Welkom, riding the bus will expose you to some of the 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 Pietermaritzburg to Welkom.
Make a music playlist for your bus ride from Pietermaritzburg to Welkom, and enjoy the scenery to tunes from your own personal soundtrack.
