(well done to the City. A big improvement on the R8/trip flat fee)
The City Council has approved a range of fares for passengers using the existing MyCiTi airport bus shuttle and the inner-city service that is planned to begin operations from October 2010. These fares, some of which include discounts, seek to make the services accessible to as many people as possible.
On the airport shuttle, tickets for children aged four to 11 years of age will cost R25 each – half the standard R50 adult fare. A ticket aimed at airport workers and all other regular travellers will offer an unlimited number of trips per month at a cost of R400. (These tickets are non-transferable.)
