The MyCiTi fares are reviewed each year as part of the City of Cape Town's annual budget process. During these uncertain times, we are keeping fares as low as possible. As of 1 July 2020, most costs will remain unchanged or be reduced to make it easier for you to access convenient, affordable transport.
You need a myconnect card loaded with money to use MyCiTi. The myconnect card is a bank card which expires, so remember to check the expiry date. They are available from any station kiosk and participating retailers. Keep your myconnect slip card in a safe place.

Card expiry replacement fee: R22
Ideal for a once-off journey, single-trip cards are available at any MyCiTi station kiosk. Each card is valid for a single trip anywhere on the MyCiTi system within two years of purchase. To get the real benefit of the MyCiTi service, opt for a myconnect card instead.
