Train services between Mabopane and Saulsville in the Tshwane Metro will resume on Tuesday morning.
Metrorail says the Mabopane limited train service will resume operations using diesel locomotives.
Gauteng Metrorail Spokesperson Lillian Mofokeng says the trains will not be able to stop at all the stations – including Soshanguve, Kopanong, Wintersnest and Akasiaboom for safety reasons as well as the severe impact of theft and vandalism.

She says operational plans are at an advanced stage for Saulsville’s limited train service to resume operations from the 16th November 2020.
Mofokeng says due to COVID-19 requirements, the trains will only load 70% of total train capacity to allow for social distancing.
The “first come first serve” rule will apply.
Train services will only operate during morning peak from 05:00 to 09:00 and in the afternoons from 15:00 to 19:00.
