The City of Polokwane is on the fifth gear to commence with the rollout of Leeto La Polokwane Bus Operations at the end of April 2021. The initial rollout plan for the beginning of March 2021 was disrupted by the announcement and implementation of the Level 3 Lockdown by the government in December 2020 which came with stricter conditions. 

The Operations will commence with a 21 days’ trial operation from 05 April 2021. During this trial period, members of the public will be allowed to travel on the bus and experience the service at no cost. Strict compliance with the Covid-19 regulations will be adhered to.


Please note that Leeto La Polokwane Bus Service is a cashless bus service. This means that no cash will be accepted to pay for your trip on the bus. The system uses preloaded travel cards. More information will be shared in due course regarding where and when to get the travel cards and the cost thereof per trip.

In the meantime, capacitation and training of drivers, as well as testing of the bus systems have commenced. As a result, the public will start to see the Leeto La Polokwane busses on the roads in the City and along the Phase 1A route.

Please visit the Leeto website for more information about the service, busses, routes and other interesting features. The City of Polokwane, together with our Operations partner, Esilux, are committed to delivering a safe, reliable, scheduled and affordable public transport system. Leeto La Polokwane aims to improve the state of public transport and the overall passenger experience in Polokwane, as such, members of the community are encouraged to support this new public transport service.
