Night Bus: New bus service to connect Johannesburg's nightlife hotspots

update (26 Sept 2013): Due to certain circumstances, the launch of the Night Bus in Johannesburg had to be postponed to early 2014.

update (15 Aug 2013): Night Bus is set to launch on 28 Sept 2013!

Great news for travellers (and, of course, for locals) looking to party around Johannesburg. From September 2013 the so-called Night Bus, Johannesburg's first fixed route night transport network, will make bar-hopping super easy by connecting almost all of the city's nightlife hotspots. Tickets are expected to cost R30pp for unlimited rides in one night (19:00 - 04:00) and buses are set to arrive every 20 minutes along the same route. Each shuttle will carry up to 24 passengers and a security officer. Alcohol will not be sold and allowed on the buses. Check out Night Bus' facebook page for more info!
