South Africa and Transportation For the World Cup

In June 2010, South Africa will become the first African nation to host the World Cup for soccer, the largest tournament in the sport, held every four years. There is a lot of work to be done before a nation can host such a large event. The country must be able to transport fans from their incoming flights to their hotels and to and from games, there must be enough accommodations, and there must be plenty of security. This is just to name a few of the things that must be done. That does not include the stadiums that need to be built or renovated and the traffic and parking control that must be completed as well. For now though, one of the most important aspects of hosting is being able to provide transportation to get fans to and from the games. According to Miami limos for prom expert, there is a lot of coordination that must go on between the hotels and the transport companies when so hundreds of thousands of people are expected to attend. A wedding limo Miami driver also said something similar. Here is a list of the different modes of transport available to those going to South Africa for the World Cup Event.

1. Taxis will be available on match days, but there will not be enough for everyone, so people coming should be prepared. The good news is that most drivers speak English, since South Africa was an English colony.

2. Buses will be able to take people to the stadiums, which have been built somewhat far away from the major cities. With buses, people are asked to be patient because they will fill up very quickly and it will take time to get everyone who needs a ride to the stadium and back.

3. Some hotels are offering their own private bus service to and from games for only hotel guests. This is probably one of the best options because this way you can know that you have a ride waiting for you. Also, this is nice because if, for some reason, there is a problem, you can always call the hotel and ask for assistance.

4. Limos will be available, but for a pretty high price. The issue with a limo in South Africa is that it is very conspicuous and may make you and your friend or family a target of crime. If you do take one, get out and in fairly quickly and try to stay in a group of people when exiting the vehicle

Hopefully, the transportation issue will be alright and fans can get to the games to support their national team. If you are worried about getting there on time, it may be best to leave a few hours in advance to beat the crowd and to make sure you can see the entire match. If there is a problem or delay with transportation, remember to try to remain calm and in all likelihood your problem will be solved at some point.
