Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (PRASA) trains are expected to resume operations on the 1st of July after nearly three months of lockdown.

The trains will however be transporting people at a 15 percent capacity.

PRASA spokesperson Makhosini Mgitywa urged commuters to consider other modes of transportation and not just trains.

Mgitywa said unparalleled levels of vandalism have affected affected PRASA’s ability to deliver services effectively.

In the Western Cape, the first trains will travel between Cape Town and Retreat.

There are concerns whether or not the Central Line will be operational.

Plans to refurbish the Central line came to a halt when the lockdown came into effect.

Close to a million commuters were using the Central Line before it was closed down.

Meanwhile, Transport Minister Fikile Mbalula is expected to announce today (Tuesday 30 June) which lines will be open from the June 1st.
