Who We Are

Building a Dream

In 2006, the Bombela Concession Company was appointed by the Gauteng Provincial Government to design, build, operate, maintain and partially finance the Gautrain project. The Gautrain project is a Public-Private-Partnership that includes a 15 year contract for the maintenance and operation of the Gautrain rapid rail system.

The Bombela Concession Company implements its obligations through diverse contractual relationships with the primary contract being the Concession Agreement, which is held between the Gauteng Provincial Government and the Bombela Concession Company.

The Bombela Concession Company contracted with specialised entities to design, construct and operate aspects of the Gautrain rapid rail system.

The Bombela Concession Company strives to achieve excellence in the execution of our contract with the Gauteng Provincial Government and to be recognised as a world leader in concession management. We aim to achieve this through consistently delivering a safe, clean and reliable integrated public transport system – The Gautrain. Together with the Bombela Operating Company, we have shown that this vision can be achieved.

The Gautrain commenced operation in 2010 and to date we have transported in excess of 60 million passengers on the Gautrain system. With an average punctuality of 98.4%, the Gautrain is one of the most reliable passenger train services in the world – an achievement that we are exceptionally proud of.
