Shosholoza Meyl

Transnet’s Shosholoza offers senior citizens over 60 a 25% discount on proof of ID.

Shosholoza Meyl will treat each passenger to “A Pleasant Experience” from the moment they book and buy their ticket, to when they get to their destination and disembark off the train.

Shosholoza is the name of a popular traditional African song sung by the hard working men who laid the railway lines. It means to push forward, endeavour or strive and it invokes a sense of pride. Today the song is sung to rally our sportsmen and women on the field.

Imeyili is an old colloquial term used to describe a long distance train. By replacing Rail with Meyl a warm sense of history is restored in the name Shosholoza Meyl.

Welcome aboard!
