This is the second video in a series of videos explaining the regulations on the use of public transport under lockdown level 3.

  • In this video, we discuss the recent changes to the regulations with effect from 1 June 2020. Some of those changes include the permitting of travel from one province to another where this is allowable under the level 3 regulations. Notwithstanding the recent judgment declaring the regulations unconstitutional, this declaration of invalidity is suspended for two weeks, meaning that these regulations discussed remain in place for the time being.
  • Persons permitted to travel across provinces include persons traveling for work (provided they are in possession of the requisite permit), persons moving to a new place of residence, persons caring for an immediate family member, learners or students who have to commute to and from those schools or institutions of higher learning during periods when those schools or institutions are permitted to operate, attendance of funerals, transportation of mortal remains, obtaining medical treatment, persons returning to their place of residence from a quarantine or isolation facility and movement of children.

  • All drivers, security personnel, taxi marshals and passengers must wear a face mask or a cloth covering the nose and mouth.

  • The allowable capacities for Minibuses, midi-buses and taxis remain at 70% loading capacity;
  • Buses must still adhere to a maximum loading capacity of 50%, inclusive of standing passengers;
