The Public Utility Transport Corporation (PUTCO) is a provider of commuter bus services in the provinces of Gauteng, Limpopo, and the western parts of Mpumalanga in South Africa. PUTCO was established in 1945 after the bus strike of 1944. Now, PUTCO is going through a rough season. The bus company has announced that it will be retrenching 214 of its employees.

In a statement the company says like most businesses it has been severely impacted by the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent lockdown regulations imposed by government.
