Residents urged to use public transport

The City is urging residents to make use of the MyCiTi service during the holidays.

The City of Cape Town has urged people to use public transport if they plan to visit the Atlantic Seaboard during the festive period.

During the rest of the festive season Transport for Cape Town (TCT), the City’s transport authority, said they will monitor the traffic situation along the seaboard to determine whether any interventions are needed.

Transport for Cape Town in conjunction with the City’s Traffic Services, will over the next few weeks intervene to prevent gridlock conditions along the Atlantic Seaboard. Similar interventions were implemented in 2014 and 2015 and this year is no different.

During the rest of the festive season, TCT will closely monitor the traffic situation along the Atlantic Seaboard to determine whether any interventions are needed.

Furthermore, the roadworks along Main Road in Clovelly and in Kommetjie in the far south will be suspended as from Wednesday December 14 this year until Monday January 9 next year if all goes as planned.

Visitors to Table Mountain are also strongly advised to make use of the MyCiTi service.

The MyCiTi shuttle service to the Upper Table Mountain stop is free of charge, meaning visitors only need to pay on Route 107 (Camps Bay) from the central business district to the top of Kloof Nek Road, where they can disembark at the Kloof Nek stop situated at the Kloof Nek Road/Tafelberg Road intersection.

From there, commuters should transfer to the Route 110 bus – the free Table Mountain shuttle service – to the Upper Tafelberg stop and disembark at the cableway station.

The same applies to passengers who are departing from the cableway stationk stop at the Kloof Nek Road/Tafelberg Road intersection. For enquiries, call the Transport Information Centre on 0800 65 64 63.
