Cape Town's public bus company, Golden Arrow, says they are operating at 80 % capacity this morning and is hoping to up its commuter service as the day progresses.
A Golden Arrow bus driver was shot in the face on Monday.
Spokesperson, Bronwyn Dyke-Beyer, says the man is in a stable condition
in hospital and is recovering.
She says the escorting of buses is the main driver in improving its service to the public: "We're very grateful to the Premier, MEC, SAPS, the soldiers, the city's law enforcement team for their assistance so far.
We've seen more boots on the ground and we are grateful for the escorts we're receiving from them.
It makes our drivers and passengers feel a lot safer." PHOTOS: Western Cape Government.
