Firstly, for our foreign guests, we drive on the left hand side of the road and work in kilometres when it comes to speed and distance!

With that out of the way, there are a number of ways for you to get around our beautiful city.

  • Cab or taxi: There are a large number of metered taxis. The average rate if R10/kilometre.
  • Car hire: All the major companies operate out of the airport and have city depots.
  • On foot, bus or bicycle: There are a growing number of tours available by run, bicycle, bus or foot in the city. The City Sightseeing bus is an awesome way to see the city at your own pace as you jump on and off at your leisure. The MyCiti bus is another quick and easy way to get around the city and surrounds. You will need to purchase a pre-paid myconnect card to use it though.
  • Train: Trains run basic commuter routes into the city and also stretch out along the scenic Southern line, which stretches as far as Simon’s Town. It is an affordable option to travel around the city.
