MyCiTi services launch on Saturday, 15 February, linking central Cape Town with Hout Bay via Main Road in Sea Point. Commuters must get their myconnect cards to use these new services.
Both routes run from Civic Centre station in the city centre along Main Road through Green Point and Sea Point, Clifton and Camps Bay and on to Llandudno and Hout Bay. The routes split in Hout Bay with one route running via Hangberg(108) and the other via Imizamo Yethu(109).
The new services are:
108 Hout Bay – Hangberg – Sea Point – Civic Centre
109 Hout Bay – Imizamo Yethu – Sea Point – Civic Centre
Passengers travelling to Camps Bay, the upper city bowl and central city area will also have the choice of transferring at two beachfront stops in Camps Bay to the MyCiTi routes that travel over Kloof Nek (106 and 107).
With the launch of the new services, Golden Arrow bus services and minibus taxis currently operating along these routes will be withdrawn. This means that users of these public transport modes need to get ready to use MyCiTi by getting a myconnect card loaded with enough money to travel.
