The Putco Bus Company has revealed that around 30 buses were stoned on Thursday as commuters vented their anger over bad service and the high cost of tickets.

During a protest, three buses were also set on fire in Dobsonville, Soweto.

In Cape Town, train coaches were also set alight, costing Transnet millions-of-Rands.

Transport Minister Sibusiso Ndebele condemned the destruction, saying the cost to repair the damage could have been spent elsewhere.
