CT bus routes extended

2012-10-09 09:20

The MyCiti bus service in Cape Town will be extended to Khayelitsha and Mitchells Plain, but some believe the service to the poorer areas will be sub-standard. Watch.WATCH

Cape Town - All MyCiTi bus services were suspended on Friday morning because of ongoing strike action, the City of Cape Town said.

"MyCiTi has now decided to suspend all services from 09:00 this morning, due to threats of possible violence against the service," said transport mayoral committee member Brett Herron.

Routes in the Table View area were suspended on Friday out of safety concerns for passengers and staff, but this was later extended to all routes.

"MyCiTi will monitor the situation during the course of the day and if the service can return to operation in the Table View area it will," Herron said.

Drivers have been involved in a nationwide bus industry strike for better wages.
