City of Cape Town 'hopeful' MyCiti N2 service back on track by end of July
More than a month after Cape Town's MyCiTi N2 express bus service was suspended due to a contractual dispute, Mayoral Committee member for Transport Felicity Purchase says she's optimistic that a solution will be found soon.
Purchase tells CapeTalk's Kieno Kammies that she is waiting for an update about a meeting that took place on Thursday, but is confident that an agreement will be reached.
