South Africa’s City of Cape Town, through the town’s committee for transport has approved a project for the further roll-out of the MyCiTi bus service in the greater Wynberg area, which if given council approval, will see new infrastructure investment of US $58m.
City’s mayoral committee member for transport, Felicity Purchase who confirmed the reports, said the two proposed transport routes form part of the roll-out of Phase 2A of the MyCiTi service which will connect commuters from the Metro South-east with Wynberg and Claremont.
“The roll-out of the MyCiTi service will transform Wynberg. Firstly, the service will provide much-needed scheduled public transport for those commuting between Wynberg and the Metro South-east. The service will integrate with the rail stations in this area so that commuters can easily change from one mode of public transport to another, and it will also improve facilities for pedestrians,” said Felicity Purchase.
