You can also get to [[Kimberley (South Africa)|Kimberley]], [[Pietermaritzburg]] and [[Durban]] (by changing trains in Bloemfontein), [[Port Elizabeth]] (by changing trains in Noupoort or Colesburg) and [[Mthatha]] (by changing trains in Amabele).
The disused railway line to [[Mthatha]] (previously called Umtata) via Amabele has been upgraded and a full passenger service between Amabele and [[Mthatha]] began operating on 1 March 2008. This route is called "Kei Rail". At present trains only run on weekends, with passengers being conveyed from East London station to Amabele (76 km north of East London) by bus. It is envisaged that from May late 2008 trains will also operate during the week, not only weekends.
[ MetroRail] operates commuter trains to some outlying suburbs of East London, with a reduced service over weekends.
The disused railway line to [[King William's Town]] is being upgraded during 2008. Passenger services should commence sometime in 2009.
