Some of you would have heard of some groups that get together to do some extreme touring. A famous bus in Johannesburg is the "Fergie Bus." But what are these all about ?
A Bus is organised by a parkrunner who normally has (or has access to) a large(r) reliable vehicle. They are not necessarily buses in the true sense of the word, but are most often people's cars which will comfortably seat 5 or more people on a long trip. The organiser then reaches out to fellow parkrunners or will make an appeal on Facebook or on one of the many parkrun Whatsapp groups. The Bus is usually filled on a first come first serve basis.
The organiser will the specify a start time, start location/pick-up point as well as ride-share costs. These costs cover petrol, tolls as well as wear-and-tear on the vehicle for the trip.
