Putco Bus Routes, Booking, Fares, Contact Details, Schedule, Ticket Prices & Hire

The Public Utility Transport Corporation (PUTCO) is a provider of commuter bus services in the provinces of Gauteng, Limpopo, and the western parts of Mpumalanga in South Africa.[1] PUTCO was established in 1945 after the bus strike of 1944.

During the apartheid era, PUTCO was the main "blacks only" bus transport company and was often seen as a symbol of oppression. As a result, the company was frequently targeted in attacks and boycott actions. The biggest challenges then were the high cost of diesel fuel, maintenance and spares. PUTCO has been part of South African history. The company traded on the JSE Limited for over six decades, survived the penny fare increase of 1954, the 1976 riots and the upheavals of the 1980s.

PUTCO began manufacturing special access buses in 2002. They are designed and operated in consultation with organizations that work with people with disabilities.

It has entered into a Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment (BBBEE) deal, which afforded Black African's meaningful participation in the transport industry. PUTCO is now 42.6% Black African owned, 11% of whom are women.
