Tshwane Takes the First Step toward Transforming Their Public Transport System

Xtremetec has partnered with the City of Tshwane to deliver a revolutionary, safe, reliable and rapid bus system for the people of Tshwane and its visitors. Xtremetec is the agency that is responsible for the design, operating and maintenance of the Automated Fare Collection (AFC) system. The AFC card system will ease commuter congestion by eliminating the use of time wasting cash exchanges, improving the overall efficiency of the rapid transit system.

On the 1st of December 2014 the City of Tshwane opened its doors to the public, launching the A Re Yeng bus service, the city’s first bus rapid transit system. The inception phase runs from Nana Sita street, through University Road to Hatfield, looping back to University Road. The system also includes feeder routes that link to the surrounding areas. The A Re Yeng bus service will not replace the existing Tshwane Bus Service; the two systems will run concurrently servicing their designated areas.

A Re Yeng will provide real-time information to passengers and will cater for passengers with special needs, including children, the elderly and the disabled. They will be able to embark and disembark easily from all A Re Yeng buses. The inception phase is the first step forward towards a city wide rapid transit system that Xtremetec is proud to be a part of.
