Greyhound COVID-19 safety precautions

 In Covid-19

Greyhound COVID-19 safety precautions and regulations on South African interprovincial bus travel during a worldwide pandemic.

The COVID-19 pandemic has swept South Africa and the world and its effects have been devastating. Not being able to travel to visit our loved ones has taken its toll on many, and now with the relaxation on the regulations for South Africas interprovincial travel, it’s time to get moving again and to do so safely!

During the lockdown, Greyhound and Citiliner were hard at work getting your favourite buses in tip-top shape to welcome you all back on board safely! However, we need to remember that COVID-19 is still prevalent in our nation and your safety and health are important to us which is why we have implemented strict measures to ensure your journey with us is as safe as possible.
