Cape Town’s MyCiTi bus service has logged 18.32-million passenger trips for the 12 months from July 1, 2022, to June 30, 2023.

This is significantly more than the target of 16.9-million passenger trips originally set by Cape Town’s Portfolio Committee on Urban Mobility for the 2022/23 financial year.

“We are pleased that the [Urban Mobility] Directorate has exceeded our expectations by far for the past financial year,” says portfolio committee chairperson Mikhail Manuel.

“In addition to this positive result, the directorate has reported up to 68% growth in MyCiTi ridership year-on-year since 2021.”

“This level of user uptake has surpassed expectations and demonstrates a robust post-Covid-19 recovery, and the growing confidence that commuters have placed in this safe, accessible transportation system,” adds Urban Mobility MMC Rob Quintas.

“Between the staggering cost of living and ongoing growth in the city, more and more motorists are making the smart switch to this affordable public transport option where it is available. 

“Not only are our passengers beating the fuel price hikes, but also playing an active role in reducing congestion on our roads.”

Quintas says the directorate has set “new, higher targets” for the current financial year, and “I look forward to seeing the trend continue upwards”.

For the current 2023/24 financial year the directorate has set a target to increase the MyCiTi ridership to 18.5-million passenger trips.
