The City of Cape Town regrets to inform commuters that the MyCiTi service remains suspended until further notice. The nationwide strike action is still ongoing, and as such the MyCiTi buses are not operating. Read more below:
The nationwide strike action affecting the South African bus industry is continuing.
After nearly two weeks of strike action it is still uncertain when the dead-locked wage negotiations will be resolved.
The lock-out instituted by the Vehicle Operating Companies operating the MyCiTi service remains 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.
MyCiTi commuters are requested to make alternative traveling arrangements for the time being, and in particular for the start of the work week on Wednesday 2 May 2018.
The City is monitoring the situation, and will provide commuters with updates as far as possible.
The City wants to remind those commuters with monthly MyCiTi tickets that the monthly packages will be extended equal to the number of days that the strike action lasts. The number of days 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.
