TSHWANE’S INTEGRATED RAPID PUBLIC TRANSPORT SYSTEM, A RE YENG, CAN BE EASILY IDENTIFIED BY THE COMPONENTS BELOW.
A RE YENG POLE STOP
A Re Yeng feeder stops are easily identiﬁed by the pole stops, which are positioned along the bus feeder routes. Here passengers can embark and disembark from the roadside kerb.
A RE YENG BUS SHELTER
A Re Yeng bus shelters are located along the trunk and feeder routes. Passengers can also embark and disembark from the roadside kerb.
A RE YENG BUS
Passengers will ride along the trunk and feeder routes in a fleet of 30 A Re Yeng rigid buses. Passengers will embark and disembark from the bus station, bus shelter and pole bus stop.
A RE YENG BUS STATION
The A Re Yeng stations are located along the trunk routes. Passengers can embark and disembark from the station situated n the middle of the road.
Bus lanes are marked with red paint on a black asphalt road. There are yellow road studs separating the busways from normal traffic.
Trunk route intersections are controlled by traffic signals with bus displays; these relate specifically to A Re Yeng buses. When the bus display is green, only buses are allowed to move. Motorists must pay careful attention, as in some cases they may not be allowed to turn right when the bus has priority at an intersection.
There are three green lights at trunk route intersections: The green disk is for straight-driving and left-turning vehicles (image 1). The green bus is for buses only (image 2). The green arrow is for right-turning vehicles (image 3).
When the red disk under the white arrow is red, vehicles intending to turn right must wait (image 3).
When the red bus is shown (image 4) and the green arrow starts flashing (image 3), straight-driving vehicles (image 1) and vehicles turning right can go.
Vehicles turning right must therefore always observe and adhere to the signal display under the white arrow.
The traffic signal system will give priority to buses in some cases in order to ensure that they adhere to their timetable. Motorists should therefore note that traffic signal phases may change suddenly and will not always run in the same sequence, and therefore they have to pay attention at all times to the applicable signal displayed.

ROAD LINE MARKINGS FOR RIGHT-TURNING VEHICLES
In some situations there will be no right turn at the junction stop line and a right-turning vehicle must manoeuvre into the right turn pocket across the bus lane in advance of the junction as shown in the sketch below.
SLIDING ARROW SHOWS WHERE TO TURN ACROSS BUS LANE INTO RIGHT TURN POCKET – YELLOW DELINEATORS WILL BE REMOVED AT THIS LOCATION.
