How To Travel Using Your Smartcard
** Simply “tap in” with your card as you enter the paid area of a Rea Vaya station or at a bus stop, and “tap out” again as you exit at your destination. Rea Vaya stations have access gates with validators. Hold your card against the validator and the gate will open. There are staff members, wearing Rea Vaya uniforms, standing by to assist you.
** If you embark or disembark at a bus stop rather than a station, simply tap in or tap out using the validator near the door of the bus.
** The system will automatically deduct the correct fare, based on how far you’ve travelled, from the money pre-loaded on your card. Check the validator display to view your remaining balance .
What’S The Minimum Balance Needed To Travel?
It’s important to ensure that there is sufficient points on your smartcard to travel. You need at least R14.10, which covers the fare for the longest trip on the Rea Vaya routes.
Know your smartcard number and expiry date :
** The faster we’re able to trace your details on the smartcard database, the sooner we’ll be able to transfer your money.
** To this end, it will help if you can provide the number of your old smartcard.
** For this reason, commuters are encouraged to keep their Rea Vaya smartcard number and expiry date written down somewhere safely in case their card is one day lost or stolen.
** The smartcard number is the 16-digit number on the front of the card.
** The expiry date is the month-year combination (for example, 03/19) under “valid thru”, also on the front of the card.
** You should also take care to provide your correct ID number, as the wrong number will also delay the money transfer process.
** Still have questions about your smartcard? Contact Rea Vaya’s call centre on 0860 562 874.
