Irate MyCiti commuters staged a protest at a MyCiti bus stop in Tafilsig, Mitchells Plain, to voice their grievances with the poor standards of the infrastructure, compared to those in other suburbs.
Community activist Suleiman Stellenboom on Friday said that the transport service did not apply the same measures in the area as in other neighbourhoods.
The City's Brett Herron explained that the temporary bus stop poles are erected uniformly across Cape Town at pilot routes.
Listen to the full conversation from CapeTalk's Breakfast with Kieno Kammies:
We don't reject MyCiti. We say yes to the service. Our concern is that they must apply the same measure that they apply in Camps Bay and in Milnerton.— Suleiman Stellenboom, Mitchells Plain community activist
All we ask of MyCiti is for them to be transparent, accountable and better at public participation.— Suleiman Stellenboom, Mitchells Plain community activist
There is only so much the City of Cape Town can do if residents don't arrive at community meetings. It is unfair for them to complain if there was poor attendance.— Brett Herron, Mayoral Committee Member for Transport
