Host City Nelspruit Focuses on Shuttles and Park-and-Ride During Cup

World Cup host city Nelspruit has revealed its public transport plans for the tournament. The plans focus on providing public shuttles and access to fan parks and the city's stadium. The plans also emphasize parking cars away from the venues and taking transit options the rest of the way.

"The transport system is an additional service to the regular day-to-day public transport system already in place. It comprises a public transport hub, six park-and-ride points and one park-and-walk point, all with free and secure parking, as well as an airport pickup point.

"Shuttle services to the stadium, Fan Fest and public transport hub will be operational from the park-and-ride and airport pickup points," he said.

Mogale said 600 branded buses and minibus taxis would provide the shuttle services, with a number of primary and alternative routes that had been developed to ensure the system runs smoothly and traffic congestion is kept to a minimum.
