The Gautrain system operator, Bombela, said on Wednesday that it would introduce three new bus routes during November, while several existing routes would also be optimised by adding a number of new stops.

Bombela said “these enhancements” were the result of customer feedback. It added that the changes would enable the Gautrain system to “better serve its customers”, while also attracting new users.
 
The revised routes were set to be implemented from Monday, November 26, pending approval from the relevant authorities.

Routes and stops from the following stations were on the cards:
 
1. Park Station to Johannesburg central business district. New stops were to be added at Marshall and Harrison streets; Boston College, Marshall street; Absa Bank, Marshall street; and Reef Hotel, Anderson street.

2. Rosebank Station to Killarney. This was a new route that would be added to the Gautrain network.

3. Rosebank Station to Melrose Arch. New stops were to be added at Sascoc, in Atholl Oaklands.

4. Rhodesfield Station to Emperors Palace, which was another new route to be added to the network.

5. Midrand Station to Noordwyk. New stops to be added at the Unisa School of Business Leadership, Janadel avenue; 6th & 5th roads; 6th road opposite Shell garage; 14th road and Skurweberg street.

6. Midrand Station to Sunninghill. New stops to be added at Maxwell drive and Allandale road; as well as at Waterfall Estate Hospital.

7. Centurion Station to Technopark. New stops to be added at Eco Fusion; Nellmapius drive and Sand street; and Denel Irene Campus, Nellmapius drive.

8. Pretoria Station to Pretoria central business district. New stops to be added at the Nursing Academy, Struben & Lilian Ngoyi (formerly van der Walt) streets; Sisulu (formerly Prinsloo) and Johannes Ramokhoase (formerly Proes) streets; Francis Baard (formerly Schoeman) and Du Toit streets; Francis Baard (formerly Schoeman) and Meintjies streets; Troye and Park streets; Kotze and Jubilee streets; and Kotze and Inez streets.

9. Pretoria Station to Groenkloof. This was another new route.

10. Hatfield Station to Queenswood. New stops to be added at OR Tambo Building, Soutpansberg street; and Soutbansperg and Gordon roads.

Another new development within the Gautrain system was a park-and-ride facility which would be introduced at Emperors Palace. This would allow passengers to park their cars and board a Gautrain bus to Rhodesfield Station, which was increasingly facing capacity constraints at its parking facility.

Gautrain users can download detailed bus routes and maps on the Gautrain website at www.gautrain.co.za, or contact the Gautrain Call Centre on 0800 428 87246 for further information.
 
The Gautrain bus service currently transported between 12 000 and 13 000 people a day.
