As part of the introduction of the next phase of Rea Vaya to Alexandra, Sandton and Midrand, the City of Johannesburg has started the process of procuring the new buses.

The tender to procure the buses has been advertised and closes on Wednesday, 13 December 2017.

The process is expected to be complete in time for new Rea Vaya Phase 1C operating towards Alexandra and Sandton through Louis Botha Avenue scheduled for October 2018.

The Rea Vaya Phase 1C (a) operations will require a total of 141 buses, of that 109 will be articulated and 32 complimentary buses. The buses will be delivered in batches between April and November 2018.

The new buses will be low entry with a floor height of 300mm, will have a cassette type boarding ramp fitted at all bus doors, for easy entry for people with disabilities. The articulated buses will have capacity to carry 110 passengers, with 44 seated and 66 standing; complimentary will carry 70 passengers, 40 seated and 30 standing. All the new buses will comply with European emissions standards of Euro V or VI as part of the City of Johannesburg’s efforts to mitigate against climate change and to reduce air pollution.

The procurement of Rea Vaya buses will create short term employment opportunities, since the chassis will be imported and will be re assembled in South Africa. The bus body will be locally manufactured with 80% local content requirement.

Currently the City of Johannesburg is busy improving public transport facilities along Louis Botha Avenue towards Alexandra and Sandton that includes building new 17 Rea Vaya stations; a public transport interchange next to Pan Africa in Alexandra; upgrading of surrounding roads, sidewalks and intersections.
