Expansion and Financing[edit]

There needs to be a section on the planned expansion. This article also gives the impression that the project is a giant waste of money, yet the financing of the expansion is being done with no government funding. With its fast adoption and high fares, this may become the fasted a passenger railway of this scale has recouped its initial investment. Average fare is around R64*55 000 daily passenger trips = R3 520 000 per day. x364 days = R1 281 280 000. Operating Costs were reported at R209 120 000 for 2015. So thats over a billion rand a year... — Preceding unsigned comment added by Martinmenge (talkcontribs) 20:15, 24 May 2016 (UTC)

Ridership[edit]

The following Tweet indicates an update to the ridership, which is now much more, than currently stated.

The tweet reads: "Did you know...Daily passenger trips is around 55 000 on trains and 23 000 on buses".
