Gautrain bus drivers will return to work today and all train and bus services will operate normally.

This follows an illegal strike by Samwu bus drivers on Monday which forced commuters to make alternative arrangements.

About 400 drivers took to the streets demanding a wage increase of five-thousand-Rands a month, a transport allowance and medical aid.

Bombela Concession Company’s Errol Braithwaite says there was nothing they could do at the time of the strike.
