CAPE TOWN – There is still no relief for MyCiti bus commuters as some routes remain closed and many others are overcrowded with commuters desperate to get to work.
Torched buses and a strike in its sixth week, have left the bus service operating at 85-percent of its total capacity.

Workers are demanding they be insourced by the City of Cape Town.
In a statement, the city has backed the four vehicle operating companies that hire workers, saying they were well within their rights to dismiss those on strike.
They also say insourcing is not an option but workers here say they will not budge or return to work until their demands are met.
However, there may be nothing left to go back to.
