The festive season is nearly here and many of us are looking forward to time off work to relax or to enjoy the fresh air and summer sun with our loved ones.
MyCiTi is here to help you enjoy the holidays with our usual services and a few special festive season changes. We urge everyone to be safe and to help protect each other, and remind passengers that all services are subject to changes in lockdown levels and travel restrictions.
This year, passengers can look forward to late-night shopping and more buses to Camps Bay on popular beach days. A special holiday service is also planned to help Atlantis residents access the popular Silwerstroomstrand beach and resort.
There will also be fewer services on weekdays from 20 December until 7 January as a result of fewer people travelling to work.
Here are some tips to enjoy your holidays safely and responsibly with MyCiTi.
Follow the Covid-19 advice
- Wash or sanitise your hands regularly.
- Wear your mask correctly whenever you are in public.
- Travel in the off-peak whenever possible.
