Cape Town is planning a major upgrade of the Nyanga public transport interchange.

The Nyanga Public Transport Interchange (PTI) is one of the busiest in the city, with around 230 minibus taxis operating from there, carrying around 16,000 commuters between Nyanga and 25 destinations across Cape Town on weekdays.

The Golden Arrow bus service also operates from the site.

The proposed upgrades will include improvements to the existing minibus taxi facility and a new MyCiTi station as part of the rollout of the service in the Metro South East.

The proposed MyCiti station will be located between the Golden Arrow Bus Service (GABS) terminus and the minibus taxi facility.

Once operational, MyCiTi passengers will have a direct route to Wynberg, Claremont, Ottery and the Lansdowne area without having to transfer. With a single transfer, passengers boarding Nyanga PTI buses will be able to connect to Khayelitsha, Mitchells Plain, Hanover Park, Strandfontein and various other destinations along the way.

The proposed design concept aims to have all these public transport services – minibus-taxis, Golden Arrow bus service and MyCiTi bus, located in a PTI to facilitate and facilitate the transfer of commuters between different modes of transport, and also to provide with a variety of transportation options.

The proposed improvements will make the facility more efficient for minibus taxi operators. Commuters will benefit from a new roof covering the boarding and waiting areas to protect them from the weather. There will be lighting for after-dark safety, universally accessible walkways and washroom facilities. Informal traders will also benefit as commuters will be able to move easily and safely through the PTI, making it more accessible to those passing through.
