In line with the directive issued by Transport Minister Mr Fikile Mbalula to cater for the elderly during the 21-day lockdown period, the Tshwane Rapid Transit will provide bus services to all SASSA pay points across all the city’s seven regions from March 30, 2020, to April 1 2020.

The buses – A Re Yeng and Tshwane Bus Service (TBS) – will ferry the SASSA pension beneficiaries to their pay-point locations and back from 8 am to 4 pm and they will only be available to the specified group announced by SASSA.

The strict measures follow the national lockdown which is aimed at minimising the unnecessary movement of people to prevent and combat the spread of COVID-19.

A list of the regional coordinators to assist in the smooth transportation and loading of the vulnerable people of the society has been developed. Attached is a list of pick-up points and the respective coordinators.
