Informative heritage map guides MyCiTi commuters to city’s historic sitesNew MyCiTi heritage maps will now give commuters the chance to explore their heritage using public transport<p>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.</p><p>New MyCiTi heritage maps will now give commuters the chance to explore their heritage using public transport. The map includes two of Cape Town’s most beautiful heritage spots: the Bo-Kaap and Company’s Garden. It also features the Slave Lodge, District Six, the Robben Island Museum, and other memorials, places of worship and sites of interest.</p><p>‘I want to encourage residents to make most of Heritage Month and to use the MyCiTi service to experience our heritage and culture and be a tourist in your own city. This informative map will assist with identifying and learning more about our heritage sites,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Transport and Urban Development, Councillor Brett Herron. </p><p>Commuters can access the <a href="">MyCiTi heritage map</a> free of charge at all MyCiTi stations and participating retailers, or they can get copy here.</p><p>Residents and tourists 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. </p><p>Commuters can save even more over the Heritage Day long weekend when they load an OPT3 for R110, and enjoy unlimited travel for the entire three days: Saturday, Sunday and Monday. </p><p>Monthly Pass users can simply hop on the bus and enjoy the sites. </p><p>Commuters can also enjoy the original artworks at MyCiTi stations celebrating the unique history of each area. </p><p>This is initiative is one way that the City is living up to its recently adopted Organisational Development and Transformation Plan which prioritises the use of existing facilities to support cultural activities and events.</p><p><br><strong>End</strong></p>2017-09-18T22:00:00Z1
