Cape Town launches new transport authority

MyCiti rolls out 145 feeder stops

MyCiti bus terminals are springing up everywhere as Intermodal programme gains ground.
The new face of Cape Town transport

Cape Town’s ambition to become the first South African city to have a fully integrated public transport system will be realised through the launch of the city's new intermodal transport authority known as  Transport for Cape Town (TCT) and with the expansion of its MyCiti Bus Rapid Transport (BRT) system which includes the rollout of a bus feeder system with 145 stops.

TCT aims to bring the city’s public transport network under one management system, with a single contracting authority.

It also intends to introduce a single timetable, ticket and communication system for all public transport.

TCT now seeks to be in charge of the allocation and dissemination of all subsidies for bus and commuter rail transport.

With all these developments there are also job opportunities in the pipeline, with the supplier of the feeder buses, Gauteng-based Busmark 2000, having announced plans to establish a bus manufacturing and assembly hub in the Western Cape.
