Metrorail will be launching its premier service, the Khayelitsha Express, on Wednesday 31 October 2007.
"We had a dry run today and the reaction from the commuters has been phenomenal."
"The National Minister of Transport, Minister (Jeff) Radebe will be officially launching the train at nine-o-clock at Khayelitsha station," says Metrorail Marketing and Communication spokesperson Riana Scott.
Metrorail encourages those communters who will use this service to register for the early bird special.
“The normal monthly ticket would be R300 per person for the month and for a limited time until the 29 or the 31 October 2007 commuters can get a R100 discount. In other words commuters can travel in luxury for R200 a month,” says Scott.
Tickets can be purchased at the Cape Town Information Desk or call (021) 449 2144.
