shelter ...... By: goitsemang( Kuwait ), 2013/11/28 23:08
I just wanna know is it hard for you to take some of the money that the gorvenment subsidize every year to make a better shelter at Jubilee mall since you don't buy any busses with it? We buy very expensive tickets to get wet. Now it's raining we don't have anywhere else to go. We're stuck here. Please guys we've been very loyal to you even when you had a strike that lasted about a 6 weeks we still came back. Think about us people.

Bus Schedule interruptions during December 2012 ...... By: Visitor( United States Johannesburg), 2013/01/10 22:29
I am dissapointed by the manner in which the Company North West star provided such bad service its clients. It is a normal practise that people buy monthly tickets because they expect to be served rightfully so for the money they paid. In as much as I understand that during the December vacation, few people are going to work but the Company North West star never bothered to inform their clients about the rescheduling of times. I never saw a single notice informing people of the buses rescheduling. Is it because they are considered illiterate and not knowing their rights? Especially on the 24th December, some people were not even sure if the bus would turn up or not. Poor people did not even have taxi fare and had to put their lives at risk by asking for lifts. Is there any professionalism in all this? The Company have collected their money and it was not invested in their interests but on the Company's interests. North West management please sort yourselves out. You are making billions out of our poor South African black people. So stop being inconsiderate........

Different bus rates ...... By: Priscilla( United States Johannesburg), 2012/12/19 22:34
I have on three occassions being charged different rates. At first I paid R20 from Soutpansburg Street to Vasfontein just after Rooival and the driver just instructed me to get into the bus and never gave me change. On the second occasion a different driver did the same until I requested for my ticket as I have paid. The driver was furious that I requested for a ticket and iisntucted one passenger who was chatting to him to just give me a ticket from Capital Park and I insisted that the ticket was incorrect. He then gave me the right ticket only to realise that it costed R13 to my destination. The driver then gave me R5 change from the R20 that I paid. I insisted that my change is short of R2 and he told me that he doesnt have change. All that I want to highlight is that drivers take advantage of commuters who are not familiar to them and make a killing on what they pay and taking advantage of the fact that they are not familiar with fees charged. I therefore request the company to warn their drivers as this is on its own fraud and a very unprofessional of them to treat their clients in this manner. Your response to me on this matter will be highly appreciated.

RECKLESS DRIVER (BUS NO B2885 - MABOPANE HIGHWAY) ...... By: rasefako( South Africa Midrand), 2012/06/28 13:54
The driver for the above mentioned bus number does not care about other road users, he drives as he likes, does not indicate and change lanes as he wishes whenever he feels like. One day NWS will be like PUTCO and kill people like no body's business because of drivers like him. He drove me recklessly not once on Mabopane highway arround 06:20 and today it was worse as he even braked the bus after changing the lane in front of our taxi.

Contollers at Jubilee mall ...... By: Titus( United States ), 2012/06/11 16:19
I travel from Hammanskraal to Midrand everydary.On Friday,08/06/2012,the 4hrs 00 bus from Midrand got breakdown,it was reported, and no action was taken immediately.When the 5 oclock bus comes it was so full to such an extend that it cannot take the load of the other bus{Trainbus}We had to stop at Coporate park until it was dark.The replacement bus came only at 07h 25.this is the time the last buses are leaving at Jubille mall.arriving at Jubileemall there was no transport for me I told the controllers that I am going to Phake,they said to me that they got no help for me.I said to them now what must I do ? They said to me the only option is to take bus going to Ngobi and ask the driver to drop me at Pienaarsriver.I said but there is still no transport for me from pienaarsriver.They said there is nothing they can do.One of the said be quik the bus is leaving. I had to take that bus
My question is ,is that good for the controllres to say they have got no help for me.whereas they were driving home with the Golf.Again why can't they stop 07h 30 buses if they know that there is a bus that got breakdown
