A Golden Arrow bus was also set alight in Delft South, while several other buses and vehicles have come under attack following a taxi strike in Cape Town on Monday. This caused a disruption to bus services.
The strike by taxi operators has since been called off.
Bronwen Dyke-Beyer, Public Relations Manager: Golden Arrow Bus Services says things are look a lot better than they were earlier. She adds that although delays can be expected, they will ensure most passengers are ferried home.
Some areas are still no go-zones explains Dyke-Beyer.
We have officials everywhere on the ground to monitor things closely.— Bronwen Dyke-Beyer, Public Relations Manager: Golden Arrow Bus Services
She says at the moment they are also weighing up the risk and cannot go into high risk areas that have been identified by police officers.
Dyke-Beyer tells CapeTalk's John Maytham that more than a hundred windows and windscreens were damaged to stoning, injuring some passengers.
Donald Grant, the MEC for transport and public works, met with taxi association representatives on Monday to resolve what led to the violent strike by taxi operators. Grant says he met with South African National Taxi Council (Santaco) and a group of their affiliates.
They did meet last and were unable to come to a resolution. I appealed to them to delay the strike.— Donald Grant, the MEC for transport and public works in the Western Cape
Grant says they have identified who they will communicate with going forward and who to convene over the mediation talks. He says the dispute is caused by the technical legal issues around the interpretation of their constitution. Grant hopes the mediator will therefore play a vital role in resolving those.
They also spoke of the importance of governance in this process.— Donald Grant, the MEC for transport and public works in the Western Cape
