Uber Taxi Services

Use the Uber app on your cellphone or go online at https://www.uber.com/cities/cape-town to order a taxi while in Capetown.

Public Transport

Please note this is not the advised method to travel to and from the airport. We suggest booking a private taxi or calling a hotel shuttle when travelling to Century City from the airport.

All conference venues are well serviced by the various modes of public transport. Century City can be accessed by a primary public transport interchange which operates off Ratanga Road and a second off Century Avenue. Both have designated lanes for minibus taxis and MyCiti Busses and a terminus building with public toilets, waiting areas, public telephones, a ticket office and vending machines.

Commuter buses and minibus taxis are not permitted on the Century City road network and their operations are restricted to the transport interchanges.

MyCiti Bus Service

MyCiTi is a high-quality bus-based transit system that delivers fast, comfortable, and cost-effective urban mobility with segregated right-of-way infrastructure, rapid and frequent operations, and excellence in marketing and customer service. This is a concept known as Bus Rapid Transit (BRT). 

BRT has virtually all the performance and comfort of a modern rail-based transit system but at a fraction of the cost – typically four to 20 times less than a tram or light rail transit system and 10 to 100 times less than a rail system.

The central defining feature of BRT is its focus on customer service. Dedicated, median busways provide customers with dramatically reduced travel times. Because the vehicles move quickly in peak hour, more people are encouraged to switch from private car use to public transport, which makes the whole system far more viable. The dedicated lanes also reduce operating costs so that fare levels are quite affordable.

Special attention is also given to safety and security through the presence of extensive security personnel and the use of CCTV cameras.
