Metrorail to transport concert-goers
Metrorail will transport commuters from the Bon Jovi concert free of charge.
CAPE TOWN - Metrorail says it will be transporting concert-goers to various parts of Cape Town after the Bon Jovi concert on Tuesday evening.
The rail service says it will be operating on routes to accommodate passengers who would've used the MyCiti bus service.
The service has been suspended as a result of the ongoing bus strike.
Metrorail's Mthuthuzeli Swartz highlights a few of the routes.
"We'll have trains at the end of the show going to various destinations... going to Fish Hoek via Wynberg, Bellville via Monte Vista and Kraaifontein via Goodwood."
He says the rail service is aware of the public's safety concerns on the trains, but they have beefed up security for the evening.
"The concert will be after our operating hours so the trains that will be running will have more than adequate security."
Concert-goers will have to pay to go to the concert but the return trip will be free.
The concert kicks off at the Cape Town Stadium at 8pm.
