metrorail thumb medium90 92EWN reports that some Metrorail commuters say they are optimistic that the new rail enforcement unit in Cape Town will help combat crime on trains.  

“Travelling with the train is not safe.  We would feel safer with security officers,” said one commuter.  Another commuter said more needed to be done:  “There must be more guards on the trains to guard passengers from doing anything illegal.”  Last week, 100 officers were deployed to Cape Town trains and stations following an initiative by the City, the provincial government and the Passenger Rail Agency of SA (Prasa).  While some commuters said they have seen the officers in action, many other indicated that they had not as yet.
