ANGRY SA Roadlink commuters were once again left stranded in Port Elizabeth – this time after authorities impounded a bus at the company’s Greenacres office yesterday.

The 34 commuters – most of them from Cape Town – had been waiting outside the Ring Road offices since 11pm on Tuesday, waiting for a roadworthy bus.

The commuters said they were told on Tuesday afternoon there would be a temporary delay but they were given no other information.

Yesterday, Nelson Mandela Bay traffic officials impounded the bus after receiving a complaint.

“It had no licence disc or permits. It was then taken to the roadworthy centre where serious defects were found,” an officer said. – Gareth Wilson
