This is as a result of huge demand from the public.
New routes include Limpopo and Port Elizabeth-which only launched three weeks ago – by Mainline Passenger Services that provide services on behalf of Prasa.
According to MPS, the new trains on the Port Elizabeth route will run on Wednesdays in both directions unlike previously where it was only on Sundays and Fridays.
The new frequency will be Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays in both directions.
Limpopo route has been extended to Musina, which in the past only serviced Polokwane station and back to Johannesburg.
“The revitalization of our services was informed by high customer demand between the three provinces and as a service that responds to the needs of our customers, we heeded the call to respond positively,” says Lesedi Mapheto -Head of Communications and Marketing at MPS.
The demand for more trains falls within the scope of Prasa to encourage the use of public transport, and its 2030 strategy to turn around the rail infrastructure in the country, amongst others.
