“Please note that a wildcat strike by Gautrain bus drivers in Johannesburg has resulted in the suspension of bus services from Park, Rosebank, Sandton, Midrand, and Rhodesfield stations,” spokesman Errol Braithwaite said in a statement.

“There will be no bus services on any of these routes for the rest of the day [Wednesday].”

Braithwaite urged commuters to follow Gautrain on social media so that service information could be distributed as quickly as possible.

“Train services are unaffected. Further information will be distributed as soon as it becomes available.”
