Rea Vaya operations not guaranteed, labour battle not over

There seems to be no light after the tunnel as embattled Rea Vaya Bus Transit struggles to operate due to business and labour-related issues.

REA VAYA OPERATION BROUGHT TO A HALT BY LABOUR PROBLEMS

Today, Wednesday, 3 January, Rea Vaya Passengers were informed that buses will not operate due to labour-related issues between PioTrans and its employees.

The company reported that the exit point of the depot was blocked and all buses could not operate.

“We apologise and advise passengers to use alternative transport.”

BUS COMPANY FACES BUSINESS RESCUE

This comes shortly after Rea Vaya was placed under business rescue late last year.

 In a series of reports from EWN, the bus operator has faced several challenges in 2023. Now creditors are threatening to seize 25 of PioTrans’ buses.

To make matters worse, hundreds of taxi operators gave up their vehicles in exchange for shares in the Rea Vaya bus operator. The National Taxi Alliance (NTA) said it has been fielding complaints of fraud, maladministration, mismanagement, poor governance and a lack of expertise for some time now. As a result, business rescue practitioner, Mahier Tayob, took over the PioTrans reins.

THE HISTORY OF THIS BUS TRANSIT IN JOBURG

The Rea Vaya bus network was introduced in 2009 as a new transport network that hopes to connect parts of the city that were previously difficult to navigate with the existing public transport systems

The network is particularly useful for tourists wishing to travel through the city centre without a car, according to In Your Pocket.

Furthermore, the Rea Vaya Bus Rapid Transport System (BRT) boasts traffic-beating bus lanes and special enclosed bus stops with raised platforms and security staff.

This is a developing story.
