30 buses destroyed over high cost of tickets
25 June 2011
The Putco Bus Company has revealed that around 30 buses were stoned on Thursday as commuters vented their anger over bad service and the high cost of tickets.
During a protest, three buses were also set on fire in Dobsonville, Soweto.
In Cape Town, train coaches were also set alight, costing Transnet millions-of-Rands.
Transport Minister Sibusiso Ndebele condemned the destruction, saying the cost to repair the damage could have been spent elsewhere.
