Getting there & away

Most interprovincial and international bus services commence in Pretoria, unless they are heading north. Translux, Greyhound and Intercape fares from Pretoria are identical to those from Jo’burg. If you only want to go between the two cities, it will cost about US$6. Minibus taxis leave from the main terminal by the train station and travel to a host of destinations including Jo’burg (US$4). Because of high incidents of crime, we don’t recommend taking the metro between Pretoria and Jo’burg.

Baz Bus (Cape Town 021-439 2323; www.bazbus.com) will pick up and drop off at Pretoria hostels.

Long-distance minibus taxis leave from near the railway and bus stations just off Scheidling St.
