THE Ekurhuleni municipality have come to the party to make the 2010 Fifa World Cup experience a memorable one for their residents and people from other areas.
This is despite the fact that Ekurhuleni will not be hosting any of the 64 matches.
Ekurhuleni is starting with Bafana Bafana by providing buses from 10 park and ride facilities throughout the municipality to Nasrec. Municipality media officer Zweli Dlamini said: "The free buses will ferry residents two-and-a-half-hours before the start of the game and will leave two hours after the game.
"During the tournament, the buses will leave their destination two-and-half hours before kickoff of the first fixture (if there is more than one game on the day)."
Park and ride transport will be available at Rabasotho, Sethokga Sports and Recreational Centre, Etwatwa West Fire Station, Daveyton Customer Care Centre, KwaThema, Tsakane, Duduza, Thokoza, Vosloorus and Zonkesizwe Sports Complex.
"We also have the Welcome Village, which will serve as the metro's main public viewing area," Dlamini said.
"Other public viewing areas will be located in Ethafeni Park in Tembisa, Bulithando Park in KwaThema and Siluma Park in Thokoza."
