Due to the spread of COVID 19 infections to the Durban Transport Employees, Tansnat, who is the
contracted Bus Operator for Durban Transport, has unfortunately made a very difficult but necessary
decision, after consultation between Tansnat and the Ethekwini Transport Authority, to temporary
suspend all Durban Transport bus services during the weekend of Friday 31st July until Sunday 2nd August 2020. The bus service will stop on Friday midnight and resume on the morning of 3rd of
August 2020. During this temporary suspension period, the Municipality and Tansnat will undertake
a comprehensive deep cleaning, spraying and disinfecting of all the Depot facilities and
infrastructure including buses.
Muvo Card sales will continue as normal to enable commuters to top up their cards in preparation
for the resumption of service on Monday 3rd August 2020.
The temporary suspension of the Bus service is a very difficult but necessary decision that we have
had to make to prevent potential rapid spread of infections to both staff and our passengers. The
lives and health of employees and staff must be prioritised and safeguarded during this difficult
We would like to apologise to our customers who rely on the bus service for the inconvenience
that will result from the temporary suspension of the bus service. We also request that our
customers make alternative transport arrangements during the temporary suspension period. We
have tried to minimise the impact by scheduling this interruption during the weekend where the
demand and utilisation of bus service is minimal.
The bus operation will resume on the 3rd of August 2020.
