Beat the petrol price hike with MyCiTi

Beat the petrol price hike with MyCiTi

With another big petrol price hike, there are still affordable ways to enjoy the special sights and sounds of Cape Town with MyCiTi – the reliable, comfortable, stylish bus service that’s synonymous with the good life.
With fares from just R5.30, or R10.60 between the city centre and Table View with a free bus connection at either end, there’s no reason to stay at home.

The route between Table View and Civic Centre is 20 kilometres. Recent figures, before the latest fuel price increase, show that the cost of travelling the same distance in a private car varies from R1.05 a km in a fuel-saving 1.1-litre car to R2.04 in a three-litre vehicle – a total ranging from R21 to R40.80 for the same trip. In peak hour traffic, fuel consumption may well be significantly more. These costs include only petrol, tyres and maintenance, and exclude repayments, depreciation, insurance, licensing and parking costs.

Using MyCiTi buses five days a week will cost you R106, saving at least R100 and as much as R300. That’s between R400 and R1 200 a month more in your pocket. So, whether it’s relaxing at the weekend or getting to work, more and more people are seeing the sense in switching to public transport.
