Translux bus from PE- Need Help! which station???

Want to book a Translux journey from Port Elizabeth to Durban, but not sure which station to depart from/ arrive at.

In PE, I have the option of "Port Elizabeth" or "Port Elizabeth Station"

Does anyone know the location differences for these? From Port Elizabeth, the fare is 400, and from Port Elizabeth Station, the fare is 320.

It would depend on where you would be spending the night before departure.

Port Elizabeth Station is close to the city centre but the Boardwalk is a nicer area to stay. Suggest you ascertain where in Port Elizabeth the pick-up point is and compare the cost of getting from your hotel to either the station or "Port Elizabeth" which is vague.

Hi, hope this gets to u in time.

the Port elizabeth station would mean the one in town, at the train station, in strand street.

Port Elizabeth would mean the one at Greenacres shopping mall.
