After nearly 40 years of service in South Africa, Greyhound/Citiliner will be shutting down.
In a statement released on twitter on Wednesday the bus company announced that the last trips will be on 14 February this year. “All trips booked for after that have been cancelled and customers will be refunded”.
The company did not say what led to it having to make the decision to close.
Greyhound provides luxury coach bus service, Luxury intercity bus travel across Southern Africa, as well as Cross Border passenger transport (#Zimbabwe & #Mozambique)
According to their website, the Citiliner is a semi-luxury coach service aimed at the cost-conscious traveler. As a cost-effective option, it emphases safety and comfort at lower fares, without compromising on quality. It has frequent driver training, 24-hour vehicle monitoring, with drive-cams to monitor safety on the road, Citiliner coaches, like Greyhound, are packed with value and safety.
On the other hand Greyhound is a luxury coach service, which features reclining seats – what a pleasure – and a cabin filled with modern entertainment systems. It is an alluring step-up in luxury that is deliberately designed for traveling peace. Why? Well, because you deserve it.
It is more like a Dreamliner coach, which is the ultra-luxurious version of the already luxurious standard, designed for passengers with a taste for business class and 5-star specifications. In certain areas, seats are covered in spacious memory foam and feel best reclined almost flat. With individual air-con vents and other traveling luxuries like individual arm rests and ear phones on request, it’s truly the most peaceful way to eat away the time.
Citiliner branched out from its big brother, Greyhound, in 2005 with one mission, to bring South Africa and its neighbors the most affordable bus travel on the continent. It boosted on servicing half a million passengers per year with over 8 million km drive.
