Nearly two years ago, we reported that the City was considering rolling-out a fleet of electric MyCiTi buses, and finally, the effort to make the transition from fuel-powered to electrically-charged vehicles is coming to fruition.
Today Brett Herron, Mayoral Committee Member for Transport & Urban Development, tweeted footage from Cape Town’s first electric bus.

Herron posted that is an extremely smooth ride, creating virtually zero noise. He also believes Cape Town will be the first city in Africa to use battery-powered buses for public transport.
