90 New Golden Dragon Buses Arrive At Border

Ninety (90) new Golden Dragon buses arrived at Beitbridge Border Post yesterday en-route to Harare for the Zimbabwe United Passengers Company (ZUPCO).

The new buses which were imported from China via Durban will take the number of buses delivered by the Government this year to more than 500.

By the end of the day on Tuesday, the buses were parked at a truck stop near Shell Service Station at the South African side of the Beitbridge border pending the finalisation of the clearance processes.

A Zimbabwean border official confirmed the development to State media yesterday. He said:

We expect the buses to cross into Zimbabwe by Thursday morning en-route to Harare.

We are using the pre-clearance facility to ensure that when they arrive on our component of the border, we only check them for compliance. This is done to avoid border congestion.

ZUPCO acting chief executive Evaristo Mudangwa said the batch should be in Harare this week.

Reports indicate that each bus is sold at over US$50 000 in China.

Thank you ZUPCO. Lower fares and sanity. Mahwindi anondirwadza hunhu hwavo mhani. Away with you. I feel pity for commuter omnibus operators though. I want them back but akarongeka neone conductor each kwete kutukisa zvinyadzi nekurovesa vabereki nemahwindi. Intercity travel was a nightmare because of these guys. Ngwavhirai kumwe.
