The national COVID-19 lockdown in South Africa aims to reduce the movement of people to help contain the spread of the highly contagious coronavirus.

Members of the public are encouraged not to travel unless necessary. This will help stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus to you, your loved ones, fellow passengers, the elderly and other members of the community who are vulnerable. 

MyCiTi and Golden Arrow bus services, minibus-taxis, metered-taxis and e-hailing service providers are allowed to operate throughout the day during level 2.

Public transport services can carry 100% of their loading capacity except for long-distance services which are allowed to only carry up to 70% of their loading capacity.  

Commuter rail services are not operational yet. Dial-a-Ride services will continue to operate for essential users.
