About Yarona

The city is taking giant leaps to introduce the Rustenburg integrated public transport system

Yarona Rustenburg is a catalyst for urban transport reform in Rustenburg and is poised to improve operational efficiency for the business community, education, and the general traveller by encouraging modal shift from private motorised vehicles to public transport. Passengers’ journey will be much quicker because bus rapid transit enjoys dedicated bus-only lanes. An added advantage of the service is the universal accessibility of the service which allows for level boarding between stations and buses and thus easily accessible to individuals with limited mobility.

How will operations be managed?

Yarona services will be managed through the RRT Integrated Operations Centre at the dedicated Control Centre to monitor the stations, buses, and other modes of transport.
