Bus Travel

Intercity buses depart from Park Station in Braamfontein. Greyhound and Translux operate extensive routes around the country. Intercape Mainliner runs to Cape Town. The Baz Bus operates a hop-on, hop-off door-to-door service, stopping at backpackers' hostels between Johannesburg and Durban or Jo'burg and Cape Town on two routes—via the Drakensberg or via Swaziland. You can buy Greyhound, Intercape Mainliner, and Translux bus tickets through Computicket. Airfares with budget airlines in South Africa, such as 1Time, Mango, or Kulala are often comparable to bus fares, particularly if you book a few weeks or more in advance.
