Cape Town airport is located 20 kilometers away from the centre of the city and the general ground transportation system is relatively different than most western cities. Private taxi companies along with regular minivan taxis offer rides for €20 to €30. A Cape Town airport taxi trip to the centre of the city lasts around 20 minutes and is highly dependent on traffic status. The alternative travel option is the MyCity bus network, which operates from 05:30 am to 21:30 pm. Fares are calculated per kilometer; similar to a taximeter, while the total bus journey to the downtown district takes 30 minutes on average. Welcome Pickups offers meet and greet services and a friendly introduction to Cape Town at the same price as a regular taxi. Click here to see the cost.
