Cape Town’s Mayoral Committee has recommended that the city extends the operating contract of the N2 Express bus service for another two years, until June 30, 2026. 

This is to allow for the continuation of the bus service between Mitchells Plain, Khayelitsha and the Civic Centre station, until such time as the second phase of the MyCiTi bus service is operational between the metro-south east and Wynberg and Claremont. 

The committee’s recommendation will serve before the city’s Supply Chain Management Bid Adjudication Committee for approval in March. 

The current contract with the N2 Express Joint Venture company that is operating the N2 Express service is coming to an end on June 30, 2024.

“I am grateful that the Mayoral Committee has recommended that the city extends this contract for another two years,” comments Urban Mobility MMC Rob Quintas.

“Thousands of commuters from Mitchells Plain and Khayelitsha rely on the N2 Express to travel to the central business district (CBD). 

“Given the implosion of passenger rail over the last decade, it is even more important that we provide commuters with a scheduled and affordable alternative. 

“The intention is to keep this service operating while we are busy building the infrastructure for the implementation of Phase 2A of the MyCiTi bus service,” adds Quintas. 

“If all goes as planned, some of the routes will be operational by 2026.”

The N2 Express service consists of four routes – two from Kuyasa serving commuters from Khayelitsha East and Khayelitsha West, and another two from the Mitchells Plain Town Centre and Kapteinsklip, in Mitchells Plain. The buses travel via the N2 highway to the Cape Town CBD and back.
