About Bombela
 
Public transport in South Africa entered a new era with the successful opening of Phase 1 of the Gautrain rapid rail project on the 8th of June 2010. The opening came 3 weeks ahead of schedule and just 44 months after the first sod was turned. The Gautrain project consists of an integrated rapid rail and bus network linking the cities of Johannesburg and Pretoria with the O.R.Tambo International Airport.

On the 2nd of August 2011 the route linking Rosebank in Johannesburg and Hatfield Station in Pretoria was opened. The final leg of the system between Rosebank and Johannesburg Park Station opened on 07 June 2012 bringing the total number of stations in operation to 10 along an 80km route alignment.

The Gautrain project is a Public-Private-Partnership and includes a 15-year maintenance and operating period after construction. Following an international tender process, the Bombela Concession Company was appointed by the Gauteng Provincial Government to design, build, operate, maintain and partially finance the Gautrain project. Bombela's shareholders include Bombardier Transportation UK Ltd, Bouygues Travaux Publics SA, Murray & Roberts Ltd, SPG Concessions Ltd and the J&J Group.

The operations are led by RATP Development – the transit operator responsible for public transport in Paris and its surroundings.
