Walking and cycling routes<h2 class="sectHeading">Our accessible city</h2><p>Our fast-developing ‘non-motorised transport’ (NMT) routes can be found along streets, major roads and greenbelts in the central city and Khayelitsha, and between the CBD and Table View. We have also developed separate, high-quality cycling paths alongside the new MyCiTi bus route, along the Klipfontein Corridor (which includes the Liesbeek Parkway).</p><p>The NMT routes are placed around our public transport networks for easy access and connections to our buses and trains.On busier roads, the lanes are wider and painted on the roadway, and along greenbelts or in less busy areas, the lanes are narrower and sometimes intended for both cyclists and pedestrians.</p> <span> <div class="notification with-heading white-copy blue bg-navy"><div class="graphic no-border">​ <i class="info opportunity">​​</i> </div><div class="desc"><h4>Did you know?</h4><p> <b>An opportunity city:</b> Cape Town is one of the few cities in South Africa with a ‘bicycle master plan’. The City has developed 435 kilometres of cycleway and a new intervention is to colourise cycleways green in order to clearly indicate cycleways as well as the presence of cyclists to motorised transport.</p></div></div></span> <p>Cape Town is one of the easiest cities in South Africa to cycle and walk. The city is bicycle and pedestrian friendly with a network of clearly marked bicycle lanes and walkways. In the centre of town, there are many audible traffic signals that help the visually impaired cross streets, as well as tactile paving to guide those with visual impairments. More audible signals will be installed as time goes on.</p><p>The city has a <a href="" target="_blank">Universal Acc​ess Policy​</a> which guides the design of the transport systems.</p><h2 class="sectHeading">Get ‘actively mobile’</h2><p>If you can’t walk or cycle seven days a week, start small. You’ll still be making a positive contribution to your health and to the environment.</p><ul><li>If you’re thinking of riding your bicycle to work, but are worried about your route, try it over the weekend so you don’t get lost or arrive late on the day.</li><li>Consider walking to your next meeting during office hours.</li><li>Lobby your office, local shopping centre or building manager for lock-up facilities, bicycle parking and a shower in the building.</li><li>Start walking or using your bicycle over the weekends for shopping and visiting friends.</li><li>We may not all have the time to walk more or ride a bicycle, but it’s important to support those who do. Slow down and share the road.</li></ul><p>We recommend being considerate towards people who are using environmentally friendly modes of transport and support courier companies that use bicycles.</p><p>Read more about <a href="">cycling</a> and <a href="">walking safety</a> on our roads.</p><h2 class="sectHeading">City transport information</h2><p> <b>The Transport Information Centre (TIC)</b><br> Our Transport Information Centre (TIC) provides information on routes, schedules, ticket prices, ticket outlets and locations of interchanges, ranks and Park-and-Ride facilities, long distance bus, rail and taxi operators, the location of tourist information centres, heritage sites and popular attractions in and around Cape Town.</p> <span> <div class="contact"><h4>​Transport Information Centre</h4> <em> <ul><li>24/7 toll-free line:<br><a>0800 65 64 63</a></li><li>​Email:<br><a href=""></a></li><li>Fax:<br><a>086 576 0278</a></li></ul></em> </div></span> <p> <b>Transport</b><br>Visit our <a href="" target="_blank">website<i class="icon link-external"></i></a> for more information on transport options in the city, and how we develop and sustain our transport systems.</p>GP0|#036fceb5-dd38-4da5-8af7-1a357bd26c48;L0|#0036fceb5-dd38-4da5-8af7-1a357bd26c48|Walking and cycling routes;GTSet|#ef3a64a2-d764-44bc-9d69-3a63d3fadea1;GPP|#cf84ce59-ed47-4a14-9a17-f263b9d28c4f;GPP|#14a3ee0b-b641-42d6-9511-506df3d1bdc9;GPP|#c529c1ac-1f8d-48ae-8079-d34f4dae9c57;GP0|#6c0fe9b6-634c-4eaf-bab9-a81d90e62be3;L0|#06c0fe9b6-634c-4eaf-bab9-a81d90e62be3|Walking and cycling routes;GPP|#ccfcad8d-5e79-437a-af31-02efcf3b0983;GP0|#469af487-7949-4ee7-8c0f-f91bab231404;L0|#0469af487-7949-4ee7-8c0f-f91bab231404|Walking and cycling routes;GPP|#d28cd67f-3bd5-4d41-9db3-54bd246b934f;GPP|#bb1d214c-4a13-47f8-89cd-911676b553ad;GPP|#245ec7aa-a528-4cd3-bcac-597c292db711;GP0|#3302acce-5cec-4f12-8af0-9ac1ace578c0;L0|#03302acce-5cec-4f12-8af0-9ac1ace578c0|Walking and cycling routes;GPP|#0ab1bd65-e964-42c2-92c8-1ec5f85aae9f;GP0|#155ccc96-c247-48cb-9dba-75c8d5820d8d;L0|#0155ccc96-c247-48cb-9dba-75c8d5820d8d|Walking and cycling routes;GPP|#e6f1c59e-02fc-4c68-bbf2-29b7424f3082;GPP|#9f841cad-99c7-419d-a78f-65752fc421d4;GPP|#af370586-9ba3-404a-9d6e-02066ca42752;GP0|#33c5bf33-5cee-4620-b6f8-d6cd6f7bcf01;L0|#033c5bf33-5cee-4620-b6f8-d6cd6f7bcf01|Walking and cycling routes;GPP|#3ba6194e-49de-4515-8eeb-ec18e7e380e6;GP0|#c16cfbc6-4be6-4d5b-a156-b3717b7e82d2;L0|#0c16cfbc6-4be6-4d5b-a156-b3717b7e82d2|Walking and cycling routes;GPP|#fb1e690c-896d-4731-b57e-18210ab7b282;GPP|#6f520d07-fa28-4a39-a1a6-a53c75fe9ed2;GPP|#e88ff549-973f-4e3c-a46c-cfbe61bd6a24;GP0|#dc3eb36f-d22f-474f-a8d2-48e3ae88c665;L0|#0dc3eb36f-d22f-474f-a8d2-48e3ae88c665|Walking and cycling routes;GPP|#8976fb79-910a-406c-bef2-3aed81e2f589;GP0|#52dc009d-c8e4-4749-949c-d66b4a3b5d8b;L0|#052dc009d-c8e4-4749-949c-d66b4a3b5d8b|Walking and cycling routes;GPP|#6e2b73bc-2edd-49aa-8dae-df7e4d557eba;GPP|#39d66b11-2134-4df5-8360-0bc5e66e8f4f;GP0|#b9e1984b-3ccc-4d63-88dc-191c1a2a21fc;L0|#0b9e1984b-3ccc-4d63-88dc-191c1a2a21fc|Walking and cycling routes;GPP|#1dd885a2-760b-4834-bc51-2811bb8a83c5;GPP|#d6c1debf-2fe6-4caf-8748-a5126af00c53Learn about the special walking and cycling routes in Cape Town, and how to get actively mobile by walking and cycling.
