Don't miss out, 3 For 1 Red Bus Special ends soon

Winter has drawn to a close with the onset of Spring, and with it comes the last chance for families to make use of our popular 3 for 1 Special. When you buy one adult bus ticket, you get two junior bus tickets for free, meaning you can take the whole family along for a sightseeing adventure that doesn’t break the bank. The special ends on the 1st of October, so take this opportunity to enjoy the start of Spring and explore Johannesburg with your family onboard our iconic, open-top Red Buses. The special is valid on public holidays, weekends, and school holidays- perfect for the upcoming September school holidays.
