Rhodes University Transport Information
Rhodes University Transport
Airport to Rhodes/ return
Blunden Shuttles operate from Grahamstown to PE and return. They give students with a student card R50 discount, and essentially the price depends on the number of students going on each trip. According to the person I spoke to on the phone, it normally ends up around 2/3 students at a cost of R250 each but beware, a single person’s trip can be R700 each way.
You can contact them on 046 622 7939 (Grahamstown office) or 041 451 4803 (P.E.).
Rhodes to City of choice/return
Translux is pretty popular amongst students as the bus can be collected in Grahhastown (which negates getting into PE or EL), and travels overnight to Joburg and Durban. Its pretty safe and clean., and no, I am not paid to write that!
To give you an idea of prices, at the time this article was written, costs were:
- Grahamstown to Durban R410 each way
- Grahamstown to Joburg R480 each way
