According to the payment schedule for the period from August 2012 to August 2013, the rail company paid a cover price of R3.50 including VAT for 256 publishing days and 3 200 copies, at a cost of R2 867 200.

It paid a further 50 cents for 256 publishing days and 3 200 copies at a cost of R409 600. This totalled R3 276 800.
