Stellenbosch is mainly a student town about 50 km east of Cape Town. Travelers from Cape Town airport can travel to Stellenbosch via a private Cape Town airport taxi or a bus plus train connection. Due to the long distance, typical minibus taxis will avoid this route, thus private operators are the only direct mean of transportation. Unfortunately, the airport of Cape Town does not offer public transportation to Stellenbosch, which means people on a low budget have to initially travel to Cape Town and then take a train connection to Stellenbosch. 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.
