Rea Vaya staff strike

2010-06-14 17:11

Johannesburg - A strike by some Rea Vaya bus drivers at Soccer City on Monday afternoon has left nearly a thousand fans looking for alternative transport, the company said.

"Some Rea Vaya Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) bus drivers embarked on an illegal work stoppage during the course of this activity (transporting fans from the Denmark versus Netherlands match)," said Clidet CEO Jackie Huntley in a statement.

Clidet is the company which manages Rea Vaya.

Huntley said the company was putting in place contingency plans to take back fans who arrived from the Constitution Hill Park and Ride and from Soweto.

"However, the less than 1 000 fans who used Westgate and Central Business District stations will be requested to use Metrorail free to go back to Westgate rail station," said Huntley.

"They will then be transported free of charge to their various Rea Vaya stations within the CBD and to Ellis Park with Metrobus."

Clidet was considering taking "decisive action" against the drivers and was formulating plans for Tuesday's match.
