Get on the bus to Cape Town’s past

New MyCiTi heritage maps give locals and visitors the chance to explore Cape Town’s cultural heritage using public transport. The fold-out map includes information about 20 sites of interest that are easily accessible via the MyCiTi bus routes. Many of these sites are in the city centre and surrounds, with others along scenic routes to the West Coast and Hout Bay.

Cape Town is South Africa’s oldest city and has a very rich heritage. Various sites around the city tell fascinating stories about our history and different cultures, religions and ideas, starting with the earliest inhabitants who led a pastoral existence on the site of modern-day Cape Town, through to the early settler era, slavery, battles, colonialism, the apartheid years and ultimately democracy.

You can access the MyCiTi heritage map free of charge at all MyCiTi stations and participating retailers, or they can get copy here: https://myciti.org.za/docs/4325/MyCiTi_Heritage%20Map_2017.pdf  

Residents and visitors can get a myconnect card and load a Day Pass for R94. This will allow unlimited travel on all MyCiTi routes at any time, or they can load a R39 OPT1 package, which allows unlimited travel outside the weekday morning and afternoon peak.

Monthly Pass users can simply hop on the bus and enjoy the sites.

Commuters can also enjoy the original artworks at MyCiTi stations celebrating the unique history of each area.
