By Bus
The new Integrated Rapid Transit (IRT) System offers international visitors a scheduled bus service between the city centre, the airport, and select suburbs in Cape Town.

By consolidating existing rail, bus, minibus and metered taxi services, the IRT will provide an efficient and robust transport network.

that will dramatically improve customer experience.
