Get the low down on bringing your bikes on board Metrorail trains and MyCiTi buses. Combining bikes and transit is a great way to travel around the city – it gives commuters freedom of mobility – placing more destinations within reach of cyclists and enabling public transit stops to be easily accessed via bicycle instead of walking.
Cyclists can take their bikes on Metro rail trains during off-peak hours (09h00- 15h00 and 19h00- until last train run), on weekdays and all day on the weekend. The cost of carriage is R20 per bike for any one direction (in addition to your ticket price).
Bicycles are permitted on MyCiTi buses and are carried free of charge! You need a Myconnect card to use the MyCiTi service. The rules on bicycles include the following:
- Customers transporting bicycles must keep them in the designated area provided for bicycles which is located next to the wheelchair area.
- Customers transporting bicycles may only board if space is available in this area.
- If no space is available for the bicycle, the customer must wait for a later bus with available space.
- Bicycles may not be placed in a manner that blocks aisles, doors or emergency exits, or which impede movement in aisles or through doors and exits.
