The MyCiTi service in Table View and surrounds has been the worst affected by the absenteeism of bus drivers who have been participating in the march to Parliament this morning, 12 April 2018. Read more below:
The National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (NUMSA) has called on its members to participate in a march to Parliament today. The MyCiTi service has been affected as a result.
The MyCiTi trunk routes – the T03 and T04 routes operating between Atlantis, Melkbosstrand, Table View, Omuramba, Dunoon, and Century City – have been the worst affected during the morning peak hour period, and commuters should expect service disruptions for the rest of the day, inclusive of the afternoon peak hour period.
Similarly, the MyCiTi feeder routes serving commuters from Sunningdale, Parklands, Big Bay and Melkbosstrand have also been severely disrupted due to bus drivers not arriving for work this morning. In fact, some of the feeder routes did not operate at all, and again, commuters are advised to please make alternative arrangements for the rest of the day.
Most of the MyCiTi routes in the inner city, Hout Bay, and to the Cape Town International Airport are operating with minor disruptions, and some delays. The MyCiTi N2 Express service operating between Mitchells Plain and Khayelitsha and the Civic Centre station has not been affected.
The City will carefully monitor the situation, and will provide commuters with updates as far as possible.
Commuters are also advised to please visit the MyCiTi website on www.myciti.org.za for regular updates; and to follow us on Twitter @MyCiTiBus; or to phone the Transport Information Centre on 0800 65 64 63 – the TIC line is available 24/7.
We apologise for the delays, disruptions, route deviations, and the inconvenience caused but do expect services to return to normal as from tomorrow morning, 13 April 2018.
