Rea Vaya, South Africa's first Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system, will kick off at the end of this month (August), giving commuters and visitors a taste of what it's like to travel on a world-class public transport system in the City of Johannesburg.

Rea Vaya
Rea Vaya, set to transform the City landscape, will new and exciting filming locations for professionals. In addition to the branded state-of-the-art buses whisking passengers from Soweto to Ellis Park and around the CBD, the stations' modern architecture and unique features are unlike anything seen before in the City.

Innovatively designed and aesthetically pleasing, the stations complement the City's eclectic mix of historical and modern infrastructure. A basic station has pedestrian crosswalks and overpasses for commuters to get to the stations, weather cover, real-time information displays, and a platform providing a wheelchair-friendly interface. Larger stations also have drop-off zones, bicycle parking zones, metered taxi ranks and information kiosks.

For more information on how to access and use BRT for location shoots, please contact Seitiso Mogoshane at the Gauteng Film Commission.
