Weegy: The Gautrain system is currently carrying around 40 000 train passengers a day, and between 14 000 and 16 000 bus passengers a day, [ says Gautrain Management Agency (GMA) CEO Jack van der Merwe. This is up from 34 000 train passengers and 12 000 bus passengers a day in January 2012. “We currently see around 1% to 2% growth a month.” The GMA previously stated that it aims for the Gautrain to move more than 100 000 passengers a day by 2016. This, however, may turn out to be easier said than done, as ridership behaviour has not been what the Gauteng province anticipated during the planning phase of the rapid-rail system linking Pretoria, Johannesburg and the OR Tambo International Airport. When the Gauteng province project team initially predicted the possible points of departure and arrival of Gautrain passengers – with these models also evaluated by the University of Leeds, in the UK – it was anticipated that the average ride length would be around 30 km, notes Van der Merwe. The reality is that it is closer to 50 km. Van der Merwe says this means the Gautrain is able to carry fewer passengers than original planning indicated, as seat churn is limited. However, a longer ride does mean more revenue from a single passenger. “The reality is that trip lengths do not match our planning.” Another discrepancy between initial planning on the project and reality is that Midrand station, halfway between Pretoria and Johannesburg, is yet to turn into a destination station, which also keeps bums glued to seats. Old Mutual Property Investment’s multibillion-rand mixed-use development in Midrand, Zonk’izizwe, planned for next door to the Gautrain station, is yet to materialise. Longer passenger trips have seen the Gautrain short of capacity at the morning and afternoon peaks, says Van der Merwe. This means the Bombela Operating Company (BOC), which operates the Gautrain, has already been forced to introduce additional capacity during these peak periods, by increasing train lengths from four cars to eight on almost 50% of the trains. Bombela may increase capacity further by increasing the coach ]
