BRT Set to Open in Pretoria

A new bus rapid transit system is getting set to begin the first phase of its operation in Pretoria on April 1. It will expand to other routes later in the year.

The BRT roll-out will be done in phases, with line 1 linking areas in the north, such as Soshanguve and Mabopane, to the CBD, while line 2 will reach out to areas in the south and east, like the fast developing suburbs along Hans Strijdom Drive and Mamelodi.

The completion of lines 1 and 2 would mean a BRT service that covers a route of about 70km and features four bus terminals, 53 bus stations and 159 buses.
