New MyCiTi routes will boost travel across Cape Town

Public transport in Cape Town is to get a boost in November with the launch of several new MyCiTi routes covering parts of the Atlantic Seaboard, the city and the West Coast.

MyCiTi services will be available in Vredehoek, Oranjezicht, Sea Point, Melkbosstrand and Duynefontein from November 2. The Sea Point route will run along High Level and Beach roads via the V&A Waterfront.

By the end of November, two new routes will launch between the Silo area of the Waterfront and over Kloof Nek to Camps Bay. A MyCiTi bus route will also replace the existing shuttle service to run from the Century City railway station, along Century City Boulevard to Montague Gardens.

'The new routes will take us a step closer to realising our vision of truly integrated transport in Cape Town. We know an integrated transport system is an important step towards more integrated communities,' said the mayoral committee member for transport Brett Herron.

Many of the existing minibus taxi and bus services along these routes will be phased out, as the 12-year operator contracts signed earlier this year come into effect.

Herron said the new stations - at Queen's Beach, Omuramba, Royal Ascot, Porterfield, Sandown and Melkbosstrand - would be opened before the buses started running so that commuters could buy and load their myconnect cards.
