The new Rea Vaya Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) System is a key infrastructural development that could radically change the way that Johannesburg is experienced and navigated. As part of the 33 station modules, artworks have been created for the entrance of each bus station. Inspired by the peculiarity, energy and stories of Johannesburg and its people, a series of artworks are selected that bring a richer reading of places and people through themes such as migration, gold, play, communication, interaction, transport and diversity.
