2012-10-08 11:18

Cape Town - The City of Cape Town is ready to roll out an expansion of its MyCiTi bus service to commuters in Dunoon, Khayelitsha and Mitchells Plain, according to a report on Monday.

The Cape Times reported that the city's transport portfolio committee would approach the council later this month to approve an adopted business plan for the bus network expansion.

The N2 Express service will take commuters straight to the city centre from two stations in Khayelitsha and one in Mitchells Plain. This service will start running by next December.

Phase 1B of the integrated rapid transit system will run from Dunoon to Montague Gardens and Century City, with attached feeder routes.

According to the report, the N2 Express will cost R338m to complete and Phase 1B will cost R709m.

Transport mayoral committee member Brett Herron said national government would fund the capital outlay and the city would cover direct operational costs.
