Greyhound To Shutdown On Valentine’s Day After 37 Years In Service

In a shocking development, one of South Africa’s biggest luxury and long-distance bus operators – Greyhound confirmed on Wednesday that it will close shop and remove all its buses from service on the 14th of February.

Announcing the development on Twitter Greyhound said: ”Greyhound and Citiliner are closing operations. Services will run until 14 February 2021. Passengers with tickets booked for services after this date will be refunded.”

It is not quite clear why the company has decided to close its business after 37 years in service. One can only speculate that perhaps the Covid-19 pandemic’s prolonged lockdown took its toll on the company.

Over the years Greyhound established a good reputation as an affordable and reliable long-distance luxury coach service in South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Mozambique.

According to the company’s statistics, its busses travel an estimated 25 kilometers each year and transported an average of 804, 293 passengers

Some of Greyhound’s loyal customers have expressed their shock and disbelief on Twitter after learning that the company will cease to exists in 11 days’ time.
