Gautrain spokesperson Kasagee Nayager says bus services are not operating - with the exception of Park Station and two buses in Midrand.

"Unfortunately due to unplanned illegal protest action by bus drivers the bus service is not operating at all stations except for Park Station and we only have two buses operating at the Midrand Station."

Nayager adds that train and midi-bus services are not affected by the strike.
