Cape Town, who previously really didn’t have any form of public transport service, have recently introduced the MyCiTi rapid public transport service, which has just seen the 200 new buses being added to the ‘fleet’ this week.
This will certainly make it easier for tourists to get around this beautiful city without the need to hire a car for their entire stay here. The service has already grown from transporting 200 to 9000 people daily.
The current routes include :
* Cape Town International Airport (4.20 am until 9.50 pm) to the City
* Table View – to be extended as far as Melkbosstrand
* Gardens – Civic Centre – V&A Waterfront (6 am until 8 pm). This is an interim service to be replaced by n9 new permanent central city routes by next year. These will include services to the Bo Kaap, Tamboerskloof, Oranjezicht, Vredehoek, the Atlantic Seabord, the V&A Waterfront, Walmer Estate, Woodstock, Salt River and Hout Bay.
