Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (PRASA) has reported significant progress in restoring passenger rail services, with 40 million passengers in 2023/24 using 31 of the 40 operational rail corridors.

Group CEO Hishaam Emeran announced at the Africa Rail 2024 Conference that PRASA has recovered 80 percent of its corridors after severe theft and vandalism during the COVID-19 lockdown.

Emeran also highlighted PRASA’s 12-billion-rand investment in capital projects and a nearly 200 percent increase in passenger numbers over the past year.

He emphasised that rail services remain critical as they provide affordable, safe, and reliable public transport.
