Cape Town trains on the ball
Cape Town - Cape Town trains will be on the ball during the soccer world cup, Metrorail said on Thursday.
During the tournament they would operate until 02:00 to ferry fans from the city centre after matches at Cape Town Stadium.
The last train would leave Cape Town at 01:00.
"Departure times will be extended to allow for extra time in the event of penalty shoot-outs," Metrorail spokesperson Riana Scott said.
The tournament schedule would kick off on June 6.
"Metrorail expects to transport some 13 000 additional users during non-match days and up to 25,000 additional users on match days," she said.
"The main focus will be on weekday matches that start at 20:30."
Metrorail would provide 57 additional train trips on weekdays, 40 on Saturdays and 29 on Sundays.
