It appears that Transport for Cape Town will be having a very busy 2014 with many new routes it is launching as part of its Phase 1 project, as well as an interim express service to the outlaying areas such as Khayelitsha and Mitchell’s Plain. In an unexpected announcement, the City of Cape Town said that from 20 February 2014, the University of Cape Town’s Jammie Shuttle service (which is free to students and staff of the University) will have an additional stop near the Gardens MyCiTi Bus Station.
This will help students and staff that rely on public transport to easily interchange from the MyCiTi system onto a Jammie Shuttle. This should save time (less interchanges) and money (since no further services are paid) for many students who would have previously had to take a MyCiTi or minibus-taxi to UCT’s Hidding Campus where the Jammie Shuttle had its initiating stop. Moreover, this will basically expand the whole MyCiTi service’s reach for the thousands of students and staff currently using the system (because the Jammie is provided free of charge).
