DURBAN has put its best wheels forward in the local tourism sector with the launch of two new Ricksha buses on Wednesday.
The new double-decker buses will replace the old double-decker buses that have been transporting tourists to various parts of Durban and surrounding suburbs.
These open top buses are similar to the ones operating on the Cape Town tourism routes.
The buses have pictures of Durban's herbal market, the entrance to uShaka marine world, Moses Mabhida Stadium, traditional Zulu dancers, shark cage diving, Nelson Mandela, the uMhlanga pier and the Durban coastline.
The introduction of the buses which will work from the North Beach tourism offices in time for the influx of tourists to Durban during the festive season.
