Gauteng's commuter rail system Gautrain, which connects Johannesburg, Pretoria, Ekhuruleni and O. R. Tambo International Airport (JNB), has announced that the Gautrain train service will not operate over the upcoming weekend. In light of the current reduced service due to the strike*, Gautrain decided to bring daytime maintenance works, which were actually scheduled to be conducted later in 2018, forward, so that the train service will be unavailable on 04 August - 05 August 2018. A subsitute bus service will be available to cater for passengers who have no alternate means of transport. Please see Gautrain's website for more information.
*Gautrain employees affiliated to the United National Transport Union (UNTU) went on a wage strike on 30 July 2018.
