    THE new MyCiTi route from Cape Town

    to Salt River will begin operating on 23

    November.

    However, taxi drivers operating on this

    route are up in arms as they say they were

    not properly consulted about the bus service.

    Taxi driverMogamat SalighHendricks be-

    lieves taxis are doing a sterling job in trans-

    portingpassengers and shouldbe subsidised.

    Government should subsidise the taxi in-

    dustry, traindrivers andbetter equip the tax-

    is to transport passengers, he says.

    However, people living in and around Salt

    River have pledged their overwhelming sup-

    port for the service as they say buses stopped

    operating in the area in the 1970s.

    WalmerEstate residentswhowereat an in-

    formation session, held at the Garden Court

    Holiday Inn last week, say the buses will

    bring them much relief as they either walk

    to the city centre or sometimeswait forhours

    on end for a taxi to fill up.

    The new Salt River-Walmer Estate-Civic

    Centre route will make use of Coronation

    and Chester Road and will also connect with

    the Salt River train station in order to inte-

    grate all modes of public transport.

    GwenKruger (57) fromWalmerEstate says

    it will be an absolute pleasure to not be

    squashed in a taxi, especially when she

    comes home with parcels after shopping.

    I hope the buses will arrive and leave as

    scheduled and that it wont be as congested

    as the taxis. I always took the bus until it

    stopped operating here, she says.

    I now take the taxi and am sometimes

    forced to walk when the taxis take too long

    to fill up. Another positive is that the bus will

    take us right to the Civic Centre where we go

    to pay our rates.

    Taxi drivers counter this saying they drop

    and fetch commuters where it is convenient

    for passengers.

    Hendricks says they are forced to wait for

    their taxis to fill up.

    Adnaan Viljoen, who has been driving the

    Cape Town-Salt River route for the last 15

    years, says evenhe gets tired ofwaiting some-

    times.

    The new nine-metre MyCiTi buses to be

    usedon the routewill also accommodate bicy-

    cles and wheelchairs. The bus also accommo-

    dates 25 people sitting and 25 people standing,

    and is fitted with five cameras.

    Spencer Forbes (51) says he looks forward

    to a more organised public transport method

    as thebuses are scheduled to arrive at regular

    intervals. The taxis are unreliable. My eld-

    erly mother also cant climb into a taxi as it

    is toohighunlike theMyCiTibuseswhichare

    lower and able to accommodate the elderly,

    Forbes says.

    Officials from the City of Cape Town are

    currently weighing up their options in terms

    of road infrastructure and the necessary

    changes which would have to be made before

    the buses operate on Walmer Estate s hilly

    terrain.

    Krishna Naidoo from the Integrated Rapid

    Transport Systems implementation depart-

    ment says theywill either do awaywith park-

    ing on Coronation and Chester Roads and

    keep two-way traffic or keep street parking,

    make Coronation an outbound road, Chester

    road an inbound road and allow both roads

    to only accommodate one-way traffic.

    Forbes, who lives at the corner of Mel-

    bourne Road which intersects with Corona-

    tion Road, says he would prefer option one.

    Andrew Swanepoel, the principal profes-

    sional officer for the IRT planning and design

    team, sayswhile it is up to thepublic to decide

    which option theywould prefer, themost via-

    ble solution needs to be implemented.

    Naidoo says option one is the preferred

    choice, but if the public provides valid rea-

    sonswhy theyoppose this route, theywill run

    with option two and monitor the situation.

    ShariefAllie owns a general dealer store on

    Coronation Road and welcomes the proposed

    route. I think one-way traffic is themost via-

    ble option, he says.

    A flat ratewill be charged untilMarch 2013,

    thereafter a distance-based fare will be used.

    For single trips from 0km to 5km, it will

    cost R4.80 during peak hour and R4.00 during

    off peak hours. For single trips from 5km to

    10km it will cost R5.60 during peak hour and

    R4.60 during off peak hours.

    However, discounts are available for pen-

    sioners and on weekly and monthly tickets.

    MyCiTi bus rollout fever

    ABOARD: Those at

    last weeks informa-

    tion session hopped

    on the new nine-me-

    tre bus and said it

    would be nice to not

    have to share a seat.
