As we celebrate transport month this October, Rosebank College, an educational brand of the Independent Institute of Education, recognises the various transport modes available to our students, offering convenient access to our campuses.
"Whether you choose to study at our Pietermaritzburg, Pretoria CBD or Sunnyside, Durban, Braamfontein, Polokwane or Bloemfontein campus, all our sites have been thoughtfully located in areas that allow our students a variety of options to choose from when travelling to and from campus," says Greg Fillmore, Managing Director of Rosebank College.
Situated on Chief Albert Luthuli Street, our Pietermaritzburg campus offers easy access to taxi and bus routes that connect you to anywhere you wish to travel in and out of the city. Our Durban campus is situated in the heart of the CBD making commuting as simple as lifting a finger to catch a taxi. Our Braamfontein campus in Johannesburg offers easy access to Rea Vaya buses, taxis, trains and the Gautrain. One is definitely spoilt for choice when commuting in the city of gold. Our Polokwane campus is situated only a stone's throw away from the busy streets, allowing our students easy access to taxis.
In 2018, Rosebank College will be opening its first Connected Campus in Bloemfontein. "Our Bloemfontein campus is conveniently located along taxi and bus routes in the centre of town," adds Fillmore. The same is true for the Pretoria CBD campuses. "Our Sunnyside campus is directly opposite the A Re Yeng bus rapid transport terminal," says Fillmore.
This year's theme for Transport Month is "Together we move South Africa Forward."
During this month government, specifically the Department of Transport, and its entities will showcase transport infrastructure services in aviation, maritime, public transport and roads. This month will also be used to further advance the country's road safety initiatives – while also creating benefits for the sector.
October was declared Transport Month in 2005 during the Transport Lekgotla. It is used to raise awareness about the important role of transport in the economy and to encourage participation from civil society and business, including the provision of a safe and more affordable, accessible and reliable transport system in the country.
