Free bus rides for unemployed jobseekers

The Western Cape Government have teamed up with GABS to offer free rides to job interviews for unemployed Western Capers with a South African identification document. The project is called "Getting YOU to Work". You must be on your way to a scheduled job interview, and you must be nominated by the partner company to be given a free bus ride. If the partner company nominates an unemployed person for the free travel, and the unemployed person agrees to it, his or her details are entered int the system, after which the unemployed jobseeker will receive an sms message on their cellphone instructing them how to register online.

If you are an employer who wants to partner with the Western Cape Government in this program, the steps are as follows:

  • Click here to navigate to the online portal.

  • Select the "Register" option, as per the image below.

  • Type in your email address, click to verify. A verification code is sent by Microsoft to your email address. Copy the verification code and type into into the online portal to verify your email address.

Free Golden Arrow bus tickets for unemployed jobseekers

  • You will then arrive at this screen; headed "The JobSeeker Travel Voucher Programme - Your free ride to opportunity".

  • There is a help desk which can be accessed either by phoning +27-860-142-142 or by clicking on the message symbol and creating a query, or by emaling

  • You can click "Add" to add beneficiaries; you will be asked to input their South African identification number. There are limits to the number of jobseekers each employer can add.

Online portal for free Golden Arrow bus tickets for the unemployed

Once registered the unemployed jobseeker will receive an sms message explaining how to collect the free bus vouchers (to 12 total free bus rides maximum), a Golden Arrow kiosk or retailer agent must be visited (with an SA ID or passport) where the free rides are loaded up onto a Golden Arrow Gold Card. You have 30 days after receiving the sms to go pick up your free rides. To complete the process, the Gold Card is presented when boarding a Golden Arrow bus. The vouchers may only be used on weekdays between 8am and 4pm on Golden Arrow buses. All vouchers expire on March the 31st, 2025.


ūüŹÜ The DA-run Western Cape once again illustrates that job creation is always prioritised. The province has officially launched their 'Getting You To Work' initiative which offers unemployed jobseekers free transport vouchers to interviews. The DA is a party that inspires hope and creates opportunities and a party that is rescuing South Africa!
