The City of Cape Town regrets to inform commuters that the MyCiTi service remains suspended until further notice. The nationwide strike action has been ongoing since Wednesday last week and is heading for its seventh day. Read more below:
The nationwide strike action affecting the South African bus industry is continuing.
It is unclear when the dead-locked wage negotiations will be resolved. MyCiTi commuters are advised to please make alternative travelling arrangements for the next few days as the MyCiTi buses are still not operating.
The lock-out instituted by the Vehicle Operating Companies operating the MyCiTi service will remain in place until further notice. Regretfully, this means that there will be no MyCiTi trunk or feeder services available for as long as the strike and lock-out continue. The City is monitoring the situation, and will provide commuters with updates as far as possible.
All of those making use of road-based transport should expect heavy traffic and longer travelling times for as long as the strike continues, and in particular during wet weather conditions.
Those commuters with monthly MyCiTi tickets must note that the monthly packages will be extended by the number of days that the strike action lasts. The extension will be determined once the strike has come to an end. Further details will be communicated in due course.
Commuters are also advised to 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 is available 24/7.
