New fares take effect on 1 July. This annual increase forms part of the City of Cape Town’s Budget process and takes into account the latest cost projections for providing services over the year ahead.
For the 2023/2024 financial year, we have tried to keep fares as affordable as possible despite predictions of further diesel price increases. Instead, our tariffs allow for fares to change during the year if the price of diesel increases or decreases substantially.
This helps protects passengers from paying too much if the cost of diesel is reduced and protects the City from ongoing losses if the cost of diesel continues to increase signifiantly.
