DIAL-A-RIDE launch

The eThekwini Municipal Mayor, Councillor James Nxumalo, launched twelve custom-designed and specially adapted midibus type vehicles for the City’s Dial-A-Ride fleet, a demand responsive public transport service for People with Disabilities.

The new buses are able to take between 5 and 7 wheelchairs, as well as those on crutches in fixed seats. The buses are specially adapted with hydraulic lifts and are SABS approved to ensure safety.  As a standard training procedure, drivers and other operational staff from Vukasambe Investments, the company contracted to operate the service, go through a customer-care programme to deal with people with disabilities.

To further support the demand, the City currently has 3 Sukuma buses, which are designed to take wheelchairs, and to transport people with other special needs on fixed routes.

New Germany – Berkshire Drive Deviation

The construction of GO!Durban (the City’s new Integrated Rapid Public Transport Network) through New Germany has progressed to a point where the newly constructed road needs to tie in to the existing roads. This will necessitate deviations at certain roads and intersections.

Berkshire Drive, in New Germany will not be accessible via Qashana Khuzwayo Rd from 30 March 2016 until 30 April 2016.

Alternative access between Berkshire Drive and Qashana Khuzwayo Road can be made as follows:

– Heading East and West on Qashana Khuzwayo Rd towards Berkshire Rd will be via Regent St and Sander Road.

– Access to Qashana Khuzwayo Road from Berkshire Drive will be via Sander Road to Coventry Ave or Regent St.
