MyCiti bus N2 express to start operating again next month

 The MyCiTi N2 express service will be returning next month, this comes after the city signed a new operating contract with the N2 company. The more than 6 000 commuters from Mitchells Plain and Khayelitsha will soon start benefitting from the service once the buses are back on the road.

In a statement on Thursday, mayor Geordin Hill-Lewis described the signing of the contract as a critical milestone and the impact cannot be overstated.

"The Urban Mobility directorate is also assessing all the bus shelters along the four routes in Mitchells Plain and Khayelitsha for urgent maintenance and repairs to make sure they're in order working order," Quintas said.

The operating service halted in 2019 after the previous contract lapsed and Dan Plato administration failed to negotiate a new deal.

Although earlier in January the city’s efforts to restart the express bus route was shaken after one of the taxi bosses who was a signatory to the agreement was shot dead. 

On Tuesday, the City, along with taxi bosses, were scheduled to sign an agreement that would enable the MyCiTi N2 Express buses to operate on the Khayelitsha and Mitchells Plain routes.

The process allowed the City to enter into a contract with the N2 Express Joint Venture (JV) Vehicle Operating Company which operated the MyCiTi N2 Express since its inception in July 2014.
