Wildcat Rea Vaya strike nearly leaves fans stranded at Soccer City

By Andy Rice 14 June 2010

Both the operator and their union were caught unawares when drivers of Rea Vaya buses suddenly went on strike, right when they were supposed to be transporting spectators back from the Denmark versus Netherlands match at Soccer City. About a thousand fans apparently ended up being diverted onto Metrorail trains back to the Westgate transport hub; the operator said it managed to get others, who had left cars at Constitution Hill, back to their vehicles.
