Joburg Transport to the Games
I have summarized information from the Joburg.org.za website and from ticketbreak.co.za website. Tickets to the Park and Rides/Walks can be booked at ticketbreak.co.za
IF you do not have your own car you will need to use DROP AND RIDE
A Drop & Ride will be provided at Westgate where fans can be dropped off by family/friends/organized taxi. The Westgate Transport Hub is near the Mary Fitzgerald Square Cnr Anderson Street and Miriam Makeba St/Pat Mbatha Bus & Taxiway, south of Newtown, CBD (closest highway: M2, off ramp Selby). It has a Rea Vaya serving Ellis Park and Soccer City Stadiums. Rea Vaya is the city’s brand new bus rapid transport [BRT] system which runs west east from Soweto, through Central Johannesburg to Ellis Park. Price R12 return Tickets can be bought from all Rea Vaya Stations. Metrorail which is the City’s commuter train service will also link to Westgate but it is unlikely that international fans will be making heavy use of Metrorail.]
If you have a car: Either PARK AND RIDE or PARK AND WALK
The City of Johannesburg has provided secure and affordable Park & Rides and Park & Walks. In order to access Park & Rides and Park & Walks you have to buy a transport ticket to book a parking space for your vehicle. This will ease congestion and allow you to rest assured that you will be able to get to your game safely and on time.
Park and Rides allow you to park your car close to the stadiums and be transported safely via shuttle and back. Prepaid ticket PRICE from R50 per car
Park and Walks allow you to park your car close to the stadiums and walk safely along a designated route to the stadium and back. Prepaid ticket PRICE from R50 per car
PLEASE NOTE: There will be no access to Park & Rides and Park & Walks sites on game days without a ticket. You will need to purchase 1 Transport ticket per vehicle not per person. There will be no Drop and Ride (drop-off areas) at the Park & Ride or Park & Walks. The ticket price at Park and Ride Sites, includes your parking vehicle fee and the tansport fare to the stadium. All Park and Ride and Park and Walks will operate from 4 hours before kick-off to 4.
