City of Cape Town bosses on Saturday said they wanted public transport to be safe and reliable for commuters.
The city aims to extend its transit police force to all interchanges in the city.

Officials say the four biggest interchanges have a group of dedicated law enforcement officials, at the moment, but it wants all interchanges to have a visible policing presence.

The city's JP Smith says the transit cops have been doing so well, it should be expanded.

“Last week we met because we are thinking about expanding the service to Nyanga.”

Smith added the unit has been doing a good job.

“It’s not a pilot project anyone. It is now a fully fledged unit and the accomplishments are being recorded on the quarterly reports. We have been receiving positive feedback from the portfolio committee.”

Meanwhile, city bosses are expected to meet with Prasa CEO Lucky Montana to discuss ways of improving Metrorail services.

Commuters have expressed their frustrations with the aging infrastructure.

Earlier in 2012, a Dutch international was injured after he was hit by a rock while travelling on a train.

In a separate incident, a teenager was hospitalised after being thrown out of a moving train in Mitchell’s Plain.

The company has promised to beef up security and improve its services.
