As the nationwide strike action affecting the South African bus industry continued on Monday, the City of Cape Town said the lock-out instituted by the Vehicle Operating Companies operating the MyCiTi service will remain in place until further notice.

“Regretfully, this means that there will be no MyCiTi trunk or feeder services available for as long as the strike and lock-out continue.

“MyCiTi commuters are requested to make alternative travelling arrangements for the time being. The City is monitoring the situation, and will provide commuters with updates as far as possible.

“Those commuters with monthly MyCiTi tickets should note that the monthly packages will be extended by the number of days that the strike action lasts. The extension will be determined once the strike has come to an end. Further details will be communicated in due course,” the City said in a statement.

Commuters are also advised to visit the MyCiTi website on www.myciti.org.za for regular updates; and to follow @MyCiTiBus on Twitter; or to call the Transport Information Centre on 0800 65 64 63 anytime.
