Everybody who has taken the bus into town and gotten on or off in the downtown bus station would remember how dark and dodgy it used to be. Since it's been opened up as part of the Strand Street and Route 67 redevelopments things have changed a bit and its a lot more open and lighter.
Adding even more colour and cheerfulness to the area is the Route 67 Bus Station Mural by 4BlindMice celebrating public transport and the daily journeys undertaken by the people of Port Elizabeth. There's even a figure in the painting that looks like Riaan Cruywagen. Wonder if it was on purpose.
