Table View – Civic Centre
A dedicated lane connects Table View and the Civic Centre on Hertzog Boulevard in the CBD, via Paarden Eiland and Woodstock. There is also a pedestrian access route from the suburb of Brooklyn across the canal to stations at Zoarvlei and Vrystaat, and a connection to the rail system at Woodstock. At Civic Centre station, commuters can change to feeder services to various stations in the City and surrounding suburbs, or to the convenient and affordable Airport service.
Passengers from Royal Ascot and surrounding areas can board the bus at the Racecourse Station on the R27.
Century City – Montague Gardens
A new service to Century City and Montague Gardens was launched on 30 November 2013; this connects to the main Table View – Civic Centre service via Racecourse Road. The Royal Ascot station on Racecourse Road outside The Paddocks services this route.

Cycling and walking
A major part of the MyCiTi system is a network of cycling paths and upgraded pedestrian walkways connecting to the bus routes. Already many cyclists and pedestrians are using the special NMT lane from Table View to Cape Town city centre. There is a planned link to this route from the cycle network in other parts of the city.
Bicycles are welcome on the buses, although access on the Table View-Civic Centre route, with its convenient level boarding, is easier than on the temporary feeder routes, where passengers board from the pavement. The intention is also to provide secure bicycle storage facilities at major stations.
Using public transport means walking more, which offers many health and lifestyle benefits. Improved pavements with benches, street lighting and creative landscaping will make the experience more enjoyable.
The more people who walk and cycle in the vicinity of the stops and stations, the safer the MyCiTi system will be.

|How MyCiTi’s Fare System Works|
|Every passenger needs their own myconnect loaded with money, except for children under four years old and less than one metre tall, who travel free.|
|Fares are based on distance in kilometres travelled, when you tap in at the start of your journey and whether or not you have a MyCiTi Mover package loaded onto your myconnect card.|
|Peak vs Saver – it’s about when you start your journey|
|Your fare depends on when you tap in at the start of your journey, regardless of when you end it.|
|You pay a bit more if your journey starts in the Peak fare period (weekdays between 06:30-08:30 and 16:00-18:00). All journeys that start outside of these hours on weekdays, as well as all day on weekends and public holidays, fall in the Saver fare period, where you typically pay 17% less.|
|MyCiTi Mover – save 20% or more with a travel package|
|Load a MyCiTi Mover travel package onto your myconnect card and save at least 20% on fares at all times.|
|Mover packages are available in denominations of R80, R100, R150, R200, R400, R600 and R1,000. Money is loaded as points onto the myconnect card and there are no load fees, so you will receive 80 points for loading an R80 Mover package.|
|Mover packages are valid for three years, so even occasional users can benefit.|
|These packages are initially only available at selected MyCiTi station kiosks|
|MyCiTi Standard fares apply if you do not have a Mover package loaded. Standard fares include load fees of 2.5% (minimum R1.50) for money loaded at a station kiosk or Absa ATM and 3.5% for money loaded at a myconnect retailer.|
|You will be charged for the distance in kilometres travelled, grouped into distance bands of
0-5km, 5-10km, 10-20km, 20-30km, 30-60km, and 60km or more.
|The distance for each journey is calculated from where you tap in at the start of your journey to where you tap out at your final destination. You will be charged a boarding fare when you start your journey and the remainder of your fare, if any, when you tap out at your destination.|
|Your journey can include transfers and stops along the way. Leave any station or bus for up to 45 minutes at a time before tapping in again to continue on the route or to transfer to another. You will be charged a single-trip fare based on the accumulated distance travelled as long as you haven’t left any station or stop for 45 minutes or more, and provided there is less than two hours between your first and last tap in. This benefit does not apply to return journeys.|
|Journeys connecting with the Airport attract an additional charge of either R35.70 (Mover) or R51.90 (Standard).|
|Access to IRT from Royal Ascot|
|Royal Ascot is served by the Racecourse Bus Station on the R27 in the median just north of the traffic lights where Racecourse Rd ends at the R27. This is close to The Paddocks and very convenient for Royal Ascot residents and the adjacent parts of Milnerton.|
|Cyclists can to access the cycle lanes on the western side of the R27 at the intersection with Racecourse Road.|
|The feeder route to Montague Gardens, Century City and surrounding areas from Racecourse Bus Station along Racecourse Road can be accessed at the Royal Ascot Station on Racecourse Road next to the Grand National Boulevard traffic lights.|
