“After nearly three weeks of strike action it is still unclear when the deadlocked wage negotiations will be resolved,” the City of Cape Town said in a statement on Sunday, 6 May 2018.

Mayoral committee member for transport and urban development Brett Herron said: "The City of Cape Town regrets to inform commuters that the MyCiTi service remains suspended until further notice. The nationwide strike action is still ongoing, and as such the MyCiTi buses are not operating."

MyCiTi commuters are requested to make alternative travelling arrangements at this stage.

The city is monitoring the situation and will provide commuters with updates as far as possible but commuters are advised to visit the MyCiTi website for regular updates; and to follow it on Twitter @MyCiTiBus; or phone the Transport Information Centre on 0800-65-64-63.
