The South African Rail Commuter Corporation (SARCC) and Metrorail yesterday commemorated the lives of those lost in railway accidents.

The aim of the transport industry was to show South Africans that progress is being made in combating violence on trains.

Critics told reporters that it is an insult to everyone affected by crime and accidents on trains.The day started with a cleansing ceremony to remember those whose lives were claimed by rail accidents, as well as those affected by it.

Metrorail also announced its plans to renovate trains in order to provide a safe and accessible for commuters.

The SA Transport and Allied Workers Union (Satawu) says much more needs to be done. Evan Abrahamse of Satawu says that access to trains for criminals is much easier than for commuters, so much more needs to be done.
