Buy your tickets online for ZAR170 or in theIr offices at ZAR190! You could also use it to go to Soweto. The staff are very helpful! They'd answer your questions about best stops to hop off in if you want to visit specific places. Great way to explore the city in 2.5-4 hours(subject to traffic).

This bus, both green and red is an excellent way to see joburg, and very carefully planned stops. It will take a full day, start first thing in the morning and make sure to see constitution hill and apartheid museum. Recommend to start from rosebank on the green like and change over to red at constitution hill.
