MyCiTi is a high-quality bus-based transit system that delivers fast, comfortable, and cost-effective urban mobility with segregated right-of-way infrastructure, rapid and frequent operations, and excellence in marketing and customer service. This is a concept known as Bus Rapid Transit (BRT).
BRT has virtually all the performance and comfort of a modern rail-based transit system but at a fraction of the cost – typically four to 20 times less than a tram or light rail transit system and 10 to 100 times less than a rail system.
The central defining feature of BRT is its focus on customer service. Dedicated, median busways provide customers with dramatically reduced travel times. Because the vehicles move quickly in peak hour, more people are encouraged to switch from private car use to public transport, which makes the whole system far more viable. The dedicated lanes also reduce operating costs so that fare levels are quite affordable.
Special attention is also given to safety and security through the presence of extensive security personnel and the use of CCTV cameras.
3-Day Cape Town Pass Holders have unlimited number of trips / unlimited distance traveling for 3 days on MyCiti buses
Normal Ticket Prices
Normal Travellers acquire a card from one of the main ticket offices and load credit (points) on the card. The amount of points expended to make a trip is then influenced by whether it is peak travel time or not. Points are also deducted when the traveler accidentally taps twice etc.
