"An efficient way to travel"

myciti, bus routes cape town, public transport cape town

 “I came from the Eastern Cape to Cape Town in November last year to stay with my aunt in Parklands. Now I’m in my first year of marketing at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology.

“I catch the MyCiTi bus from home to the central city every day to be in time for my first lecture at 8am, then I catch it home again in the afternoon. Sometimes I study on the bus and sometimes I just relax, because I enjoy the quietness. 
“I was quite worried before I came to the city, because I know that travelling around by taxi takes quite a long time. But with MyCiTi there are set arrival and departure times and it’s an efficient way to travel, even though there are a lot of stops in the residential areas. 
“Travelling with MyCiTi is nice because it saves me a lot of time - probably an hour every day.”

- Songezo Schweni

"Catching the bus is easy"

my citi, shuttle service, myciti bus schedule

“Taking the bus is much more comfortable and less cramped than a taxi, and it’s a scheduled service so you know when your bus is coming. It’s also close to where I stay, so catching the bus is easy.”

"Not far from my school"

“The buses are convenient for people who don’t have cars or cannot drive yet. It’s not far from my school so I can take the bus home and walk to get some exercise.”
