Trade union National Union of Metal Works of South Africa (Satawu) are back at the bargaining council to discuss a national bus strike after drivers downed tools on Wednesday morning.
Golden Arrow and MyCiti buses have ceased operations along with long distance bus services.
Drivers are demanding a 12% pay hike, while employers have offered them 7.5%.
Eyewitness News reporter Xolani Koyana was in Mitchells Plain, where MyCiti commuters were left stranded.
Koyana says the impact has caused frustration amongst commuters.
A lot of people were frustrated by the fact that a lot for them did not know that there was a strike that was supposed to happen. There was also frustration around the fact that Golden Arrow allowed them to buy clip cards on Monday even though they knew a strike was coming and did not make alternative arrangements for people to get to work.— Xolani Koyana, EWN reporter
