Re: [Sept/Oct 2020] SA transport observations

It's likely that the allocation was done based on driver preference. Never been too sure on that but if that's happening that's good, all I know is members on here have told me you just get what ever bus you are given and yet a few years ago I used to know this bus driver that would always try and ...

A friend claims they saw a "Not in Service" bus with some sort of lightweight steel or aluminium structure on the top of the bus about 1-2m above the buses usual height.
