Tshwane Rapid Transport Services proudly bears the name chosen by the public: A Re Yeng.
The City of Tshwane started the construction of South Africa’s latest bus rapid transit (BRT) system in Arcadia, Hatfield, on the 11th of July 2012. The system will become fully operational on 1 December 2014.
The R2.6-billion Tshwane BRT system, which formed part of the city’s revitalisation project, is part of a global BRT concept, with more than 47 BRT systems operating worldwide.
The Tshwane BRT sytem will consist of a total of some 80 kilometres of bus lines, comprising of 62 stations and will run from Mabopane through Pretoria CBD, past Menlyn and on to Mamelodi.
The system will consist of about 340 buses, some of which would be powered by gas.
The buses will travel along dedicated bus lanes in the centre of the roadway allowing you to avoid the traffic and get to your destination faster, safer and on time.
The BRT buses will run from five in the morning until midnight at two to four minute intervals during peak periods, and seven to ten minutes during off-peak periods.
How to use A Re Yeng to travel:
The BRT buses uses a cashless smart card, called the Connector that will be sold at the kiosks inside all seven A Re Yeng bus stations, situated along the inception phase route and at the Sammy Marks Customer Care Centre, for as little as R25.00.
Commuters can only start using their cards once the system becomes fully operational on 1 December 2014.
This after a period of testing and commissioning of all systems and on the job training of all personnel involved in operations, has been completed.
Pretoria will be the 4th city in South Africa with a bus rapid transit system, joining the City of Johannesburg, the City of Cape Town and Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality.
The first A Re Yeng bus was unveiled to the public in Hatfield on 30 April 2014.
Construction from Kotze Street to University Road started in April 2013 and will be completed by the second quarter of 2014. The inception phase is currently 80% complete, and construction has started on six of the seven stations.
