MyCitiBus update

We've just finished our latest 3 weeks trip to beautiful SA with a week in Camps Bay. Although we had a hire car (thanks as ever to Avis for their excellent service) we decided to try the MyCitiBus service as there was a stop at the bottom of the road.

Our initial problem was obtaining tickets. We easily located our nearest "station" in Sea Point. Tickets can only be obtained at certain (very few) locations. Unfortunately their computers were down but we were directed to the tourist information office at the V&A Waterfront. As it was only a short drive we went straight there.

The tickets cost a refundable fee of ZAR 25.00 & you must also charge them with a minimum of ZAR 30.00 making a total of ZAR 55.00. They are valid for 3 years & if you're not planning to return to SA during that period you can reclaim the ZAR 25.00 at the airport before departure.

The buses run every 15 minutes in rush hour & every 30 minutes at all other times, finishing at 22.30 hours. The buses are brand new, spotlessly clean & very well driven. It's worth being at the stop 10 minutes early as some of the time keeping is erratic. Outside of rush hour the buses are nearly empty.

The route system is now very extensive & reaches as far as Hout Bay on the west coast. We found them to be very useful & certainly saves the hassle of parking in the city. fares are peanuts.

We'll certainly be using them again when we return in October.

How did you spend the rest of your time in SA. I'm always looking for new ideas from the regulars .
