Transport for Cape Town (TCT), the City’s transport authority, will undertake a survey at the Station Deck public transport facility in the Cape Town central business district to determine the needs and expectations of those currently making use of the facility. The outcome of this survey will inform TCT’s short-term interventions and the major upgrade intended for this facility in addressing the current shortcomings and needs, as well as the future demand.
Transport for Cape Town (TCT), the City of Cape Town’s transport authority, confirms that a full-scale investigation is under way into an accident involving three MyCiTi buses. The incident happened at the Civic Centre station in Hertzog Boulevard at approximately 08:20 on 8 November 2016.
Cape Town’s built environment is characterised by low densities, long distances between residential areas and workplaces, and historical disparities with the majority of low-income residents living far from work opportunities and spending a significant percentage of their income on transport. The City of Cape Town’s Transit Orientated Development Strategic Framework – adopted by Council earlier this year – is a bold commitment to correcting the city’s spatial form over the next few decades.
The City’s public transport interchange in Nomzamo was selected as the winner in the category for community upliftment at the 80th IMESA/CESA Excellence Awards in East London on Tuesday evening, 25 October 2016.
During Transport Month we invite Capetonians to experience a different way of getting around. Open Streets Cape Town (OSCT) is returning to Langa on Sunday 30 October 2016. King Langalibalele Drive will become a car-free playground for children and adults to walk, cycle, skate, explore, connect, and even dance.
King Langalibalele Drive in Langa will be transformed once again on Sunday 30 October 2016, with the celebration of the first Open Streets Day for the summer season. The street will be car-free for the day, meaning residents and visitors can either walk around or invade the space with their bicycles, rollerblades and skateboards for fun.
The City of Cape Town has awarded the tender for the procurement of battery-powered electric buses and ancillary equipment for the MyCiTi service to BYD SA Company. Apart from lowering our carbon emissions, local residents will also benefit from this contract through job opportunities as the buses will be assembled locally and the bus bodies will in part be manufactured locally.
Transport for Cape Town, the City of Cape Town’s transport authority, will commence with the Kommetjie Road Project in Kommetjie in the far south on Monday 24 October 2016, if all goes as planned.
