Commuters often find themselves delayed en route to work, through no fault of their own, due to delays on public transport. In South Africa, workers can receive letters confirming disrupted services in order that they are not reproached for tardiness that is truly out of their hands. Previously, they would have had to stand in long queues to receive the written proof, but now travel app GoTravel have launched a new feature called Email My Boss, which enables users to request an email ‘late-note’ via their mobile phone.
