Fleets Plan 1,000 Buses on Roads During World Cup

The nation's bus fleets are planning to have at least 1,000 buses on the road during the 2010 World Cup, according to Transport Minister Jeff Radebe.

It also committed 420 semi-luxury and inter-city buses to MATCH. In addition, Pasa would provide another 110 to ferry spectators.

The remaining 1 000 buses did not form part of the signing ceremony and would be provided for separately.

Radebe said with only 437 days until the start of the World Cup, the memoranda of understanding were a show of the department's commitment to making the event a resounding success.
