Free Libhongolethu Bus Rides for VOOMA Vaccination Drive in NMB

Published: December 03, 2021

The Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality’s Libhongolethu Bus services will from 4th until 12th December 2021 provide free rides for residents who want to go to the COVID-19 vaccination sites along the bus routes.
The free services form part of the Vooma Vaccination Drive which seeks to encourage residents to take the COVID-19 life saving vaccine as the City and country is faced with increasing COVID-19 positive cases.
Three vaccination sites are located within easy walking distance from our routes as follows:
• Booysens Park Community Hall, Cnr Booysens Park Drive and Auburn Road, Booysens Park.
• Gelvandale Community Hall, Liebenberg Road, Gelvandale.
• Korsten Clinic, Livingstone Hospital, Stanford Road, Korsten.
NMBM Mayoral Committee Member for Roads and Transport, Cllr Bongani Mani encouraged residents to use this opportunity and said: "Residents wanting to travel to one of these vaccination sites may utilise one of the Branded services that will operate on these days. Persons who have, on that day, been vaccinated and wish to return home may make use of any of our services at no charge provided they have their vaccination certificate, dated on the day of travel, with them.
"The Branded services, to the vaccination sites, will commence operations from 08H00 in the morning to 14H00.  These Branded services will only drop persons at the vaccination sites, unless passengers are returning home following receiving their vaccination. The Libhongolethu services are designed that passengers may transfer between different routes at the Cleary Park (Norman Middleton) stop.”

Passengers living anywhere on our route network can use the services to get to any of the vaccination sites by transferring from on route to another at the Cleary Park Bus Station in Norman Middleton Street.
Passengers living on the routes 341 and 347 change routes at Cleary Park to the Route 340 to go to the Booysens Park vaccination site or on to the Route 300 to go to the Gelvandale or Korsten sites.
For further information residents can please call our call centre on the toll free number – 0800 47 87 87.
