Rea Vaya clears the air

By The City of Johannesburg

The City of Johannesburg wishes to clear the alleged reports that Rea Vaya is “Broke”.

Rea Vaya is an entity of the City of Johannesburg, in the Department of Transport. Rea Vaya provides BRT services to the Citizens of the City, through its appointed service providers, referred to as Bus Operating Companies (BOC’s), namely: Piotrans (Pty)Ltd. - Operating phase 1A (From Soweto to Ellis Park) and Litsamaiso (Pty) Ltd- Operating Phase 1B (Soweto to JHB CBD, via Auckland Park)

We have noted with concern, the confusion created by reports in the Sunday World newspaper which identified Piotrans as Rea Vaya. The media alert seeks to clarify that Rea Vaya is a City of Joburg brand and Piotrans (Pty)Ltd. is a standalone company, which renders services on behalf of the City.

The City wishes to re-assure commuters that services are operational and adhering to daily schedules. We are working very hard to conclude with preparations for a third BOC to operate phase1C(a) from Sandton to JHB CBD via Alexandra”, says Dorothy Mabuza, Transport Executive Director.
