Traveling by bus in Johannesburg is somewhat of a hassle due to traffic congestion and limited routes in the case of some services.


This company offers a scheduled bus service that covers over 100 routes within the Greater Johannesburg area and runs from 6AM to 7PM. A fleet of new double-decker buses has been deployed that covers six zones, with Zone One being the closest to the start and finish point of the routes, the Gandhi Square bus terminus, and Zone Six being the farthest from Gandhi Square. Ticket prices vary depending on the number of zones crossed. Books of prepaid tickets are cheaper and can be purchased from Computicket kiosks and newsstands. http://www.computicket.com/.

Minibus or minibus taxis are the quickest ways to get around the city but they are also among the most dangerous commuting methods around. The vehicles employed are in very bad conditions and tourists are strongly advised to avoid them.
