This story raises some questions in my mind. Like what is this bus subsidy all about?
And is this the unpaid portion that all the fuss is about?
And then there is the value. By my maths that claim works out at R800 per passenger being ferried back and forth.The South African Bus Operators' Association (Saboa) will be filing papers against the Transport Department if it fails to come up with a R1,2-billion bus subsidy, it was announced on Monday.
"I can confirm instructions that we have been advising Saboa, in relation to the bus-subsidy matter," said director Robin Carr from Bowman Gilfillan attorneys.
According to Saboa vice-president Adolph Komane, millions of bus passengers across South Africa may be left without public transport should the subsidy not come through.
He said almost three million passenger trips and a total of 1,5-million passengers will be affected each day if subsidies are not paid out.
