Gautrain bus routes to change

The announcement this week that the gautrain bus services are changing their routes and their schedules in certain parts of the province.

Gautrain's Kesagee Nayager spoke to Stephen Grootes to confirm these changes will take effect from 29th August 2015. She says that these changes are being made to cover the high demand routes and improve efficiency on the bus service.

The Hatfield station bus route to H6 Queenswood and Pretoria station to P4 Groenkloof will be discontinued due to low usage.

These changes will also affect commuters who use the Pretoria CBD’s P3 route as well as C1 Techno Park in Centurion. Others are Hyde Park from Rosebank, as well as J1 (Parktown) and J2 (Joburg CBD) from Park station. The H3 Arcadia from Hatfield station route servicing the Union Buildings will be enhanced.

The route from Rosebank station to Killarney (RB5) and Midrand station to M3 Sunninghill will be adjusted in order to service the AstroTech Training Centre and the Waterval development respectively.

A 10-minute interval in certain routes in peak hours and in keeping with the train schedule. The current interval is 12 minutes. All routes currently running at 24-minute intervals will now be serviced every 20 minutes during peak hours. These are Rosebank to RB5 Killarney and the Rhodesfield to RF2 Emperors Palace, where departure intervals will change from every 12 minutes to every 20 minutes during peak hours.
