used public transport, mayor Amos Masondo said.

“Spectators moved by public transport was just under half a

million,” he told reporters.

A total of 1 042 160 people attended the 15 matches in Johannesburg

and of those, 479 517 used public transport.

More than 260 000 people used the park and ride system while just

under 178 000 used the park and walk system.

The Rea Vaya bus service transported 100 552 people while almost

118 000 used Metrorail.

The remainder of spectators were VIPs and other guests who parked

their vehicles near the stadiums or were dropped off by metered taxis.
