Getting Around

Cab or taxi

There are a large number of metered taxis available. It’s easy to find one near major attractions or at the airport.

Car hire

All the major companies operate out of the airport and have city depots.

Bicycle

Cape Town has become a very bike-friendly city, with dedicated bike lanes in most areas and some of the world’s biggest cycle races hosted here. Cycling in Cape Town is not only a fun and healthy sport—it can also be a great way to get around the city.

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.

Mini bus taxi

To travel like a local, hop on a minibus taxi for a memorable ride. They can be found on main roads and hubs like Cape Town Railway Stations roof and at taxi ranks in the suburbs and townships. Fares are affordable and you get on or off where you want. Expect local kwaito to be blaring and the ‘gaatjie’ (pronounced gaa-chi), or door operator, to be ready with clever commentary.

Bus

Cape Town has a number of private bus companies and commuter bus services, as well as the City Sightseeing bus. 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.
