Minister of transport Fikile Mbalula says Prasa is not ready to resume the Metrorail commuter services
Fikile Mbalula says Prasa is not ready to resume the Metrorail commuter services. This will have to wait another month.
“Prasa was ready to go on Monday, but we can’t take that risk, because you know there are thousands and thousands of commuters who depend on that. Equally the number of people going to work as much as they increase, they are not fully 100% so to say, so it has enabled us in terms of our planning to ensure that we utilise June to get ready,” he said.
SA Lockdown: Mbalula takes aim at Rea Vaya bus services Mbalula said the revised target date for the resumption of Metrorail services is now 1 July on the following lines:
Pretoria to Pienaarspoort
Cape Town to Simons Town
East London to Berlin
Port Elizabeth to Uitenhage
Long-distance trains remain prohibited.
Mbalula briefed the media on COVID-19 lockdown regulations and directives related to transport on Saturday afternoon. Coronavirus Hotline Number: 0800 029 999 from 8am to 4 pm, Monday to Friday.
