Cape Town Transport for the FIFA World Cup 2010

The City of Cape Town will offer visitors and residents safe and easily accessible public transport during the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ from 29 May to 17 July and continuation of the airport shuttle. Rail, bus, minibus taxi and metered taxi services will cater for a wide variety of transport requirements, and will ensure that Cape Town Stadium in Green Point, the FIFA Fan Fest™ on the Grand Parade, as well as the public viewing areas (PVAs) at the Bellville Velodrome, Oliver Tambo Sports Hall in Khayelitsha, Swartklip Sports Hall in Mitchells Plain, and Athlone Civic Centre are adequately served.

Event-related public transport will be added to the regular public transport system. Existing rail, bus and minibus taxis will extend their services to cater for the increased demand around match times.
Information on regular public transport is available on the 24/7 Transport Information Centre’s toll-free number, 0800 65 64 63. A public transport route finder will also be available from May 2010 on

The comprehensive transport services that will be provided during the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ will all be accessible from or near the main transport hub in Hertzog Boulevard in the city centre, and from Cape Town Station. These are within easy walking distance of each other.
The Golden Acre bus terminus, station deck minibus taxi rank, metered-taxi ranks, long-distance bus terminal, FIFA Fan Fest™ and the fan walk to Cape Town Stadium are also close by.


A free shuttle bus service for match ticket holders will run from the main transport hub to Cape Town Stadium in Green Point. This service will operate from four hours before kick-off, until four hours after the final whistle. Buses will depart every three to five minutes, depending on demand.
A park-and-ride service with the same hours of operation as the shuttle bus will run from the University of Cape Town’s upper campus in Rondebosch to the main transport hub, and will be free of charge for match ticket holders.
A paid service, called the Atlantic seaboard service, will run from Hout Bay to the main transport hub, via Camps Bay and Sea Point, to Cape Town Stadium. It will operate from four hours before kick-off, until 02:00. The route runs from Hangberg, along the Atlantic seaboard on Victoria Road and Western Boulevard, to the main transport hub. It provides convenient access to the park-and-ride schemes at Kronendal Primary School sports field off Andrews Road in Hout Bay, and at Camps Bay High School sports field off Victoria Road. The cost of the journey will be based on the distance travelled, as with the regular service, and buses will arrive at regular intervals.
