It was started by Mayor Dan Plato during his time as Western Cape Community Safety MEC in May 2016, with 55 areas across the Metropole now participating. An additional 20 areas will be rolled out soon
Plato attended the relaunch of the Wesbank Walking Bus project in Lentegeur this morning, where he handed out new branded kits for the volunteers.
The Chairperson of the Wesbank Walking Bus Edith Van Wyk has encouraged other communities to adopt the initiative as well.
