October marks National Transport Month, where the City of Cape Town, focuses on all transport related matters. This year the City aims to promote awareness around using public transport or even cycling as a means of transport, instead of driving.
It is no secret that our roads are heavily congested during peak driving times, using public transport would lead to the elimination of motor vehicles on the road, thereby easing congestion.
The City plans on providing more cycle lanes as well as improving pedestrian walkways. A short cycle tour to be held in Goodwood has been arranged, to encourage people to make use of alternative means of transport.
Head of Transport Network Information, David Sampson says that if we all become part of the solution, everyone will benefit.
