The Gauteng Department of Roads and Transport recently released a statement in response to the payment delays experienced by Putco Bus Company. The report sheds light on the payment procedures and trends in the industry.

Payment Delays in the Industry

The delays in processing subsidized bus operators’ payments for March are not uncommon. The Public Transport Operating Grant (PTOG) is only transferred to the Province by the National Department of Transport in each financial year’s first week of May.

Bus Subsidy Contracts

The Gauteng Department of Roads and Transport manages thirty-four bus subsidy contracts awarded to thirteen bus operators, including Putco. Twenty-six of these contracts are tendered, while the remaining eight are interim contracts. These contracts are funded through the PTOG and are operated in metropolitan municipalities such as Johannesburg, Tshwane, Ekurhuleni, and Sedibeng District Municipality.

Focus on Passenger Convenience

The bus companies provide services on behalf of the government, and the Department’s primary focus is to ensure that the service is available to avoid any inconvenience to passengers regarding transport services.

Working with Putco Bus Company

The Department is working with Putco Bus Company to find a solution to minimize service disruption and inconvenience to their valued clients, the passengers, if any. The Department’s commitment to finding a solution is evident, and any inquiries about this issue can be directed to the appropriate point of contact.

In conclusion, the statement issued by the Gauteng Department of Roads and Transport clarifies the payment delay experienced by Putco Bus Company, highlights the procedures and trends in the industry, and the Department’s commitment to finding a solution ensures minimal service disruption and inconvenience to passengers. However, understanding the context and the Department’s efforts to address the issue is important before jumping to conclusions about the delay.
