MyCiTi's annual fare change takes place on 1 July 2022

MyCiTi fares are reviewed and adjusted at the start of every financial year (1 July) as part of the City of Cape Town’s annual budget.

The good news is that from 1 July 2022, most of our passengers will pay a little less. This follows the mandatory fare increase that took effect on 1 March, triggered by a significant increase in the cost of fuel.

Passengers should note that despite the welcome decrease in most fares, there could be further, unplanned fare increases during the financial year should the price of fuel continue to rise.

For now, fares are set to decrease for all journeys in the morning and afternoon peak fare periods (weekdays from 06:45-08:00 and 16:15-17:30) as well as for all off-peak journeys under 20km. Overall, our off-peak fares remain the most cost-effective way to travel.

A new R35 Mover package will also be introduced, providing more flexibility for passengers loading points to travel.

Get a card without paying more

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.

myconnect card: R35

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.

Single-trip card (exc Airport): R30

Single-trip card (inc Airport): R90
