Tableview MyCiTi services cancelled after bus torched
Spokesperson for the City of Cape Town traffic services Richard Coleman confirmed that a MyCiTi bus was set alight around 5:30 am at a bus station on Racecourse Road in the Tableview area.
The service has been terminated in the area due to this incident meaning there are no buses running at the moment.
Coleman says it's still unclear who burnt the bus but the police are on the scene to control the situation.
We had one MyCiTi bus that was set alight at the station on Racecourse Road between Koeberg and Omuramba Road.Richard Coleman, Spokesperson for the City of Cape Town traffic services
We do have Saps on the scene with metro police on sight. We are just waiting for the bus to be removed.Richard Coleman, Spokesperson for the City of Cape Town traffic services
Three weeks ago, some bus drivers and other employees went on a wildcat strike demanding that they be directly employed by the City of Cape Town.
