The train service, which was inoperative since November 2019, is an extension of the Cape Town to Langa service on the Central Line and will stop at Bonteheuwel and Langa stations as refurbishment work continues at Netreg and Heideveld stations.

‘’Commuters must note that the train will depart from Nyanga station to Mutual station, where commuters will be able to connect to a train to Cape Town. Commuters travelling to Cape Town via Pinelands can connect with the train numbers that start with ‘95’ from Langa to Cape Town. Commuters will also be able connect to the Northern Corridor (Bellville, Kraaifontein, Eerste Rivier and Wellington),’’ said Zino Mihi, acting provincial spokesperson for Metrorail.

‘’As the region, we are happy to fulfil our obligations as a community-driven service provider of mass public transportation within the Cape Town Metropole, in particular the lower and middle-income customers. The Central Line is one of our biggest contributors to revenue collection and our commuter base,’’ added Mihi.
