When you think about excellence in today’s modern world, the T. J. Motlogelwa’s group we have it all starting from the high class of people to the low class. We there fore, recommend no panic when dealing with the T. J. group of companies.
Every guidebook and website recommends one of two ways between Jozi and Gabs: the Intercape Mainliner ($20) or minibus taxis (< $10). And, if these were the only choices, the decision would be obvious. Six hours in a cramped minibus?
Fortunately, it’s a false dichotomy.
I was desperate to get out of Jozi. We visited Park station, and I inquired at the desk of every bus company. Finally, after Intercape regrettably informed me (again) of their lack of seats, I asked “is there any other way?”
“Be here, tomorrow, at 7am.”
“And you have a bus?” How did I miss this?
“There will be a bus. Just ask the desk, they’ll tell you.”
We arrived at six.
“I’m here for the bus to Gaborone.”
“We’re booked up.”
“I was told there was a bus at 7am.”
“Go outside, take left. It’s blue and white.”
I walked outside.
“Where is this bus going?”
Just as fast, just as comfortable, and they’re even R20 cheaper. Pay when you get on.
