Using Public Transport

RebusOnce you’re in Cape Town, one of the best ways to get around is by using the City Sightseeing bus, which gives you the option of hopping on and off at various major attractions throughout the day.





For commuting,  you can catch the MyCiTi bus from various points. The next station, close to the Enchanted Guest house is 400m away “Queens Beach”. Please note that you will need to purchase a ‘myconnect’ bus card from the main station at the “Civic Centre” or participating retailers in the area. For a full list please visit the MyCiTi website. The card costs R23 and you will need to load it with travel credit. Journeys cost between R5-15  each way.
