Wednesday, October 18, 2023

The Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (PRASA) has announced the resumption of passenger train services between Uitenhage and Gqeberha in the Eastern Cape.

The service, which returned on Monday, 16 October 2023, runs in the morning and afternoon and costs a flat fee of R9.

“The resumption of service is a welcome relief to commuters seeking an affordable mode of transport. Our teams are on the ground to ensure that the service is as smooth as possible. The Gqeberha-Uitenhage area is one of our most important regions,” PRASA Group CEO Hishaam Emeran said on Tuesday.

PRASA received a no-objection certificate from the Railway Safety Regulator prior to opening the service to the public. –
