Cape Town is one of Africa’s oldest cities. Shaped by history it bears the marks of colonialism, slavery and apartheid. Although the democratic era has brought great changes, inequality and exclusion, particularly for poor households, remains a visible feature of our city. Improving transport through strategic investment in the network to create better linkages between communities, providing cycling, pedestrian infrastructure and efficient public transport interchanges, and addressing the challenge of providing quality, integrated public transport services, can change this. Innovative thinking and excellence in service delivery have the potential to unlock the synergies, investment partnerships and creativity needed to grow Cape Town’s economy, and improve quality of life, for the benefit of current and future generations.

Vision

The Transport Directorate has an integral part to play in a more connected Cape Town that provides more options and more opportunities, with an effective and efficient integrated public transport service, together with a road network that connects communities to opportunities as well as enables business to grow.
