From Monday 9 May to Friday 13 May 2011, passengers will be able to use the express service that operates between Civic Centre Station and Table View Station between the hours of 09:00 and 15:00 for an affordable fare of R10. Special tickets for this week of services are available for purchase at both stations. Buses depart every hour on the hour and do not stop at any of the stations along the route. None of the feeder routes will be in operation during this week.
On Saturday 14 May 2011, the full trunk service will start operating with buses stopping at all stations along the trunk route, with the timetable following the Starter Services schedule. Tickets will be sold at kiosks at the trunk stations and on the feeder route buses, and can be bought singly or in booklets. A R10 tariff consists of two R5 tickets.
The interim inner-city feeder route, called the Gardens-Civic Centre-Waterfront route, will also begin operating.
This route will run between the Civic Centre and Green Point, the Waterfront, the Loop and Long Street areas and Gardens.
Tickets for this feeder route will cost R5,00 per trip, but travel on the Gardens-Civic Centre-Waterfront feeder route is free when used in conjunction with a trunk route trip.
A trip on the trunk route costs R10 regardless of distance travelled.
Over the weekend of Saturday 21 May and Sunday 22 May 2011, the three Table View feeder services will also start operating. These will cover the areas of Big Bay, Table View, Parklands and Blaauwberg – also linking up to the trunk service. As with the feeder route in town, travel on these three feeder routes will cost R5,00 per trip, but travel on the feeder route is free when used in conjunction with a trunk route trip, which costs R10,00.
People using the feeder route in town and in the Table View area will benefit even further as travel on the feeder route in town will still be free even though you have already had the benefit of travelling for free on the Table View feeder routes. A trip on the feeder service costs R5 regardless of distance travelled.
The ticket collectors and station ambassadors will be available to help passengers navigate the system.
