Metrorail dedicates eight trains to Bafana game

Metrorail will provide eight dedicated trains for fans wanting to

get to today’s World Cup match between Bafana Bafana and Uruguay at Loftus

Stadium in Pretoria, a spokesperson said.

“With large supporter numbers anticipated, Metrorail will be

running approximately eight trains with the capacity to transport 18 000 fans to

and from the stadium,” Nana Zenani said.

Four trains would transport fans from Johannesburg Park Station to

Pretoria Station, while the other four would ferry passengers from Pretoria

Station to Johannesburg Park Station, she said.

Football fans from Sandton, Rivonia, Johannesburg CBD, the East

Rand and West Rand were advised to make their way to Johannesburg Park Station

where they could show their match ticket and travel for free to Pretoria

Station, Zenani said.

From there they would be able to board a train shuttle service to

Rissik Station, located five minutes away from Loftus Versfeld Stadium.

“Passengers from Pretoria and surrounding areas can make their way

to Pretoria Station where they will take a train shuttle service to Rissik

Station,” she said.

Trains would depart from Johannesburg Park Station every 30 minutes

from 4.30pm.
