The year of bussing gold! Citiliner, a new level of comfort and 6 milestones we achieved in 2017

 In News

And just like that, it’s over! Yes, it’s unbelievable to think that 2017 is just a memory, and we, like you, cannot think where it all went. It flew past like a Cape wind and all we’re left with are the memories. Oh, and what memories they are! No doubt, it was a year to savour over at Citiliner and we only have you to thank for it.
So, let’s reminisce for a moment. Join us while we look back and count our milestones together, and give thanks where thanks is due. Spolier alert – you’re the reason we’re so awesome! 2018 here we come…

1. Citiliner Plus gets the gold!
Undeniably the highlight of last year was the most comfortable thing that happened in 2017, and that was the introduction of Citiliner Plus, which, needless to say, went down as a relaxing hit! Citiliner’s new Plus-level line offers buses with USB charging ports, movies-on-the-move (with fifty titles now available!) and more spacious seating than ever before.
With the Plus-line in our armoury, we remain the truest cost-conscious option when it comes to bussing, but now with a luxurious touch for those who want it. Of course, we feel that it was common sense to introduce an even snazzier version of ourselves and it’s all thanks to you! Try it out when you travel with us again. If 2017 was anything to go by, Citliner Plus will be as popular as ever.

2. Remember the Aygo? Well, somebody won it!
You’ll remember our life-changing Win-A-Car competition for two reasons: One, for the cheeky, cheerful and cherry-red Toyota Aygo you could win, and two, for your wishes and prayers that you would win it! Well, you’ll be happy to know that someone lucky did, and that someone is now probably enjoying an adventure road trip of a lifetime somewhere mesmerising. Lucky fish! No doubt, we sincerely wish them a safe, snazzy and seriously cool year in their new Aygo and dream to one day inherit some of their lucky star dust. If only…

3. Eastern Cape’s new bussing hub: Our Komani (Queenstown) Office!
2017 was the year of new offices too, and a new level of convenience. Yes, the Cape got a new office and this one is conveniently located in the in the heart of the Eastern Cape – the urban hub of the historical and brilliant Komani, once known as Queenstown. Yes, if you’re looking for a Citiliner office near you – and you happen to be near Komani, well, pop-on-in and book your tickets today. It’s just another way we’re adding value and convenience to the area, while helping you!

4. Our newest route! Johannesburg to Port Elizabeth – via incredible Cradock
Yes, we were the talk of the bussing town when we opened our new Joburg to PE route via Cradock in 2017, and there’s little wonder why: Our passengers suggested the Cradock route and in typical accommodating fashion, we delivered. This was especially helpful for students from Pretoria, Johannesburg and Bloem who often head home to the Eastern Cape during holidays and wanted a more affordable and comfortable way to travel directly to Cradock. What better solution than Citiliner then?
So, thank you to all of our loyal customers for suggesting this brilliant new route and we looking forward to having you on it in the new year.

5. New number, same brilliant service
Yes, towards the end of 2017 we had to change our contact number and we apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused. But here again to clarify, we have changed our Call Centre number and this is it: 087 352 0352. It’s charged according to your unique service provider. Oh yes, and just so you know – on the other side is someone friendly and ready to be of service.

6. Ever popular, our Facebook followers are through the roof!
We don’t like to brag about it, but this year our Facebook likes jumped by over 3,000 and that there is surely awesome enough to insert an emoji-face with a cool set of sunglasses right here. But, as always, we only have you to thank you for it and we absolutely appreciate your comments and messages when you post them – so please, keep them coming. Send one today, why don’t you? Certainly, we’d love to hear from you throughout 2018 so if you need anything, please give us a Facebook shout.
