The MyCiTi service will introduce new routes as well as more direct routes with fewer transfers and 29 new bus stops from Saturday October 27.
The decision follows a comprehensive review of the MyCiTi bus service.
Mayoral committee member for transport and urban development, Brett Herron said, “Our transport planners recently conducted a review of the MyCiTi service and the passenger demand on the MyCiTi routes. We also undertook customer surveys to determine how we could attract even more commuters to the service. The outcome of the review and the survey informed us of where we needed to tweak the service to respond to our commuters’ needs, and to better match the service with the passenger demand.”
The MyCiTi buses currently cover on average 1 456 506km a month. With the changes and extension of routes, the City will add another 150 000km to the service.
Mr Herron said, “By adding another 150 000km to the service each month, we will bring the MyCiTi service closer to more commuters and to where there is a demand.”
The City is also introducing a new MyCiTi map that is customer-friendly.
The new map will be available on the MyCiTi website as from today and it will be on display at stations and at bus stops.
