CAPE TOWN CITY GUIDE

LOCAL TRANSPORT

We recommend using either Uber or Taxify to get around. You will need a cellphone with a working data connection to use these apps. The MyCiTi bus service is a convenient alternative during the day, as there are many bus routes in and around the city.

Please note that independent taxi operators who are not linked to a larger organisation can be dangerous and we recommend that you always look for a cab with clearly visible branding.
