Pokémon GO with the red bus

27 July 2016

Launched in July 2016, Pokémon GO has become the most downloaded app in one week, with more than ten million downloads within seven days of release. And while the app has yet to be officially launched in South Africa, it is already hugely popular among gamers and the like!

The augmented reality mobile app is location-based, encouraging users to explore their cities to “catch ’em all”. And what better way to do so than on a red bus? Find Pokémon GO hot spots from the V&A Waterfront to Kirstenbosch Gardens in Cape Town or hop on the red bus in Joburg – you’re likely to find PokéStops or Pokémon Go gyms along our tours.

So if you’re on the hunt for Pokémons, hop on an open-top bus for the day. You can hop on and off at as many stops as you like, for as long as you like. And you can do so safely and conveniently – no need to stop traffic or worry about looking for parking.

If you’re a family of Pokémon hunters, take advantage of our 3-for-1 Kids’ Special. For every paying adult two kids under 18 ride for free. The special is valid on weekends, public holidays and during school holidays.

And if you’re a group of friends, buy your red bus tickets online at a discount and start your Pokémon Go hunt at any stop.
