The South African transport department is planning to set up a special 2010 travel information call centre during the 2010 FIFA World Cup, which takes place in June and July 2010. The travel information center will be ready long before the kick-off, which takes place n June 11 in Johannesburg’s Soccer City. The main task of the center is to serve  as the hub for coordinating transport in South Africa, information management and risk assessment during the 2010 World Cup.

“The centre will provide live, real-time information that will also facilitate quick decision-making and responses to incidents”, said South Africa’s transport Minister Sbu Ndebele said in a statement after meeting the 2010 Local Organising Committee chief executive Danny Jordaan.

The travel information center will be the most important place where travelers and soccer fans can get information related to  public transport such as long distance trains and buses, as well as flights and other transport issues.

Ndebele said the centre would continue operating after the tournament, one of the government’s efforts to use the World Cup to build a lasting legacy.
