Bus services are expected to resume to normal in Tshwane following disruptions on Monday.

Operations came to a standstill on Monday after an announcement by the city that 60 bus drivers would face a disciplinary hearing this week.

The hearings were scheduled for Monday and Tuesday but have since been postponed.

The group are facing disciplinary action due to an illegal strike they participated in June last year.

“The bus drivers’ strike action saw a number of commuters left without transport during the period of the strike.

The City then instituted disciplinary action against them and the hearings were postponed several times due to other related reasons.”

On Monday, spokesperson Lindela Mashigo said both parties agreed to postpone the matter to April.

“The parties’ agreement means that the services of TBS will run normally from this afternoon onwards. The City regrets the inconvenience that may have been caused by the interruptions in areas where our services were not provided as usual.”
