Who needs a car when there is MyCiti bus – a reliable, effective and safe transport system in Cape Town.

South Africa’s MyCiti bus has easy accessibility, whether you’re on your way home or rushing to the airport. This mode of transport can comfortably get you from point A to point B with no stress of being pushed and shoved.

Here’s how to become a MyCiti passenger:

  • Get your card:  In order to travel, each and every passenger has to buy their own myconnect card, except for children under the age of 4-years and less than 1-metre tall.  The card is worth R35 and can be bought at any MyCiTi station, as well as at some participating retailers, such as Checkers. For your card’s safety, you will need a unique pin whenever you load the required value.

Using your card at stops:

  • Boarding the bus: Every MyCiTi bus has a special tap ‘in’ and ‘out’ validator, which every passenger have to use when boarding the bus.
  • Exiting the bus: Alert the bus driver by hitting the ‘stop’ button – the bus will stop at the next stop. Tap against the ‘out’ validator as you exit the bus.

Using your card at stations:

  • Whether you’re beginning or ending your journey, if you want to access the station’s gates, tap the validator’s access gate.

Top-up your card
