Next 12 months crucial as PRASA prepares to receive new rolling stock

Commuters making use of the 18 new X’Ttrapolis Mega commuter trains, supplied by Gibela to the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (PRASA) are “extremely happy” with the new rolling stock, says PRASA strategic asset development group executive Piet Sebola. The Gibela Rail Transport Consortium is to deliver 600 new trains (3 600 cars) to PRASA in a R59-billion deal signed in 2014.
