MyCiTi buses are safe and efficient, with multiple stops and drops around the city connecting you to major transport routes and networks including the airport – suiting the needs of both commuters and visitors.</p> <span> <div class="notification with-heading dark-copy pink bg-light-grey"><div class="graphic with-border"> <i class="info note">​​​</i> </div><div class="desc"><h4>Changes to operating hours</h4><p>Some of the MyCiTi routes will no longer operate into the late evening as of Monday, 1 March 2021.

Our larger and original buses comply with Euro 4 emission standards and our smaller, newer buses meet very strict Euro 5 emission standards. We also reduce emissions by mixing special additives into our diesel fuel. MyCiTi is really the greenest way to travel in South Africa. </p><div class="notification with-heading dark-copy light-blue bg-light-grey"><div class="graphic with-border"> <i class="info fastfact"></i> </div><div class="desc"><h4>Fast fact</h4><p>Using public transport is a great way to reduce the amount of cars on our roads that are carrying one person.</p></div></div><h4> MyCiti App</h4><p> <a href="https://www.myciti.org.za/en/discover-myciti/using-myciti-on-your-phone/" target="_blank">Download the free MyCiTi app<i class="icon link-external"></i></a> or go to <a href="https://myciti.org.za/en/home" target="_blank">MyCiTi<i class="icon link-external"></i>​</a> for information on all available routes, bus timetables, fares and card sales/ top ups.
