About Rustenburg Rapid Transport
The Rustenburg Rapid Transport (RRT) project is a flagship national public transport initiative being implemented by the Rustenburg Local Municipality. It has been commissioned by the National Department of Transport to provide a better public transport system for the people of Rustenburg. Rustenburg is one of 13 cities being supported to introduce a world class public transport system and is one of the leading secondary cities in project implementation.
During the course of 2017 financial year, the RRT project will start to provide the first public transport services to the citizens of Rustenburg. The new system will be phased in over time, with a total of four phases planned Phase 1 will include a total of 13 bus routes which will operate along existing and improved road infrastructure with dedicated bus lanes, closed stations and bus stops. One of the main features of the new public transport system will be the Central Station being constructed in the Central Business District (CBD). More than 225,000 daily passenger trips will be catered for in Phase 1 alone.
The RRT project aims to implement the recommendations of the National Department of Transports Public Transport Strategy and Action Plan, approved by Cabinet in 2007, which gives selected cities in South Africa the mandate to establish an Integrated Public Transport Network (IPTN). Funding for the project will primarily be through a grant from National Treasury, namely the Public Transport Infrastructure & Systems Grant (PTISG).
