Travelling by bus

Cape Town has a number of bus operators, ranging from tour busses to commuter busses. It’s one of the most reliable and safe ways to get around the city.

The City Sightseeing Bus

One of the best ways to see Cape Town’s landmarks, especially if you have limited time, is to make use of the City Sightseeing Bus. It’s family-friendly and offers audio information about the journey in 15 languages, and even boasts an audio channel especially for children.

The Blue Mini Peninsula Tour, Yellow Downtown Tour and Purple Wine Tour are all also highly recommended and included in your one or two day ticket.  LaGuGu township tour offers a unique experience of Langa and Gugulethu and if you’re looking for something a little different, hop off the bus and try a City Sightseeing bus, Harbour Cruise, Sidecar Tour or Bus and Helicopter Combo.

Commuter buses

The MyCiti Bus is the perfect way to get around Cape Town without breaking the bank. It will take you almost anywhere, and is one of the most affordable transport options in Cape Town. Please note that you will need to purchase a ‘myconnect’ bus card.

The MyCiti bus service does not operate in the Southern Suburbs of Cape Town, so the Golden Arrow bus services will be your best option if you are looking to travel into those areas by bus.
