Cape Town’s MyCiTi bus network is celebrating Heritage Weekend by releasing a printable, fold-up map highlighting 20 heritage sites around the Mother City.
Each of the 20 points of interest are easily accessible using MyCiTi buses, according to the service, and include spots like Bo-Kaap, the Slave Lodge, District Six, and several others in Hout Bay and along the West Coast.
“Various sites around the city tell fascinating stories about our history and different cultures, religions and ideas, starting with the earliest inhabitants who led a pastoral existence on the site of modern-day Cape Town, through to the early settler era, slavery, battles, colonialism, the apartheid years and ultimately democracy,” it says.
“New MyCiTi myconnect cards can be loaded with a three-day pass for just R110. The pass entitles riders to unlimited travel along all routes for the duration of Saturday, Sunday and Monday.”
“I want to encourage residents to make most of Heritage Month and to use the MyCiTi service to experience our heritage and culture and be a tourist in your own city,” says City MayCo member for Transport and Urban Development, Cllr Brett Herron. “This informative map will assist with identifying and learning more about our heritage sites.”
