Brakpan Bus Company is an entity of Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality, it was established in the year 2000, when the then Brakpan Town Council took a decision to establish a private entity - BBC (Pty) Ltd; in order to comply with the requirements of the now repealed National Land Transport Transition Act 22 of 2000 and to place itself,from a transport perspective, in a strategic position to tender for future Government
bus contracts. This decision would enable the ten newly formed entity to participate in the new passenger transport dispensation which was brought about by the Act. The Act
was promulgated in December 2000 and it allowed for municipalities and parastatal operators to either tender or apply for negotiated contracts once they restructure their services into stand-alone ring fenced businesses and their business was conducted separately from any other business.
