Translux Bus Tickets

Autopax Passenger Services (SOC) originated from the previous South African Road Transport Services with passenger bus services ‘Transtate’ and ‘Translux’. After 1990 these two bus lines merged into Passenger Services Division of Autonet, a branch of Transnet with Autonet later becoming the legal entity of Autopax Passenger Services (SOC) Ltd. Falling under this umbrella today is Translux and City-to-City, a no frills regional bus service to numerous destinations in South Africa including Mozambique.
