Transcend hemispheres through a new metro line serving central Johannesburg! This WEBEO explores the possibilities of an underground metro rail system in the South African city of Johannesburg, which has a population of 5 million within its city limits.

Finally, the metro will serve underserved regions of central Johannesburg by offering them an alternative to the existing and overcrowded BRT system. The system consists of two lines. Line 1 connects from Mayfair to Troyeville go...

What do you need to become a train driver in South Africa?

Passengers have to ask each other where approaching trains are headed as digital signboards and overhead speakers are often not in use.

From Creamer Media in Johannesburg, this is the Real Economy Report. The Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa has signed a R51-billion order for 600 new trains. However, all of these trains will not be delivered at once, which means Prasa’s refurbishment programme will have to run another 15 years.
