    Good news, however this needs to be complimented by well defined bus stops. Old bus stops don’t exist anymore since there are no sign posts.
    Are they going to operate like the kombis?
    On a separate plea, please address the issue of passengers forced to sit squashed like sardines in the kombis. When one gets in there one’s dignity is stripped by these kombi operators.
