MyCiTi is helping to boost local industry and create jobs, as the first buses for the upcoming Central City services roll off the production line at the Busmark factory in Epping.
The City of Cape Town will host a Rail Summit, with a view to developing a Rail Action Plan to be included in the five-year Comprehensive Integrated Transport Plan.
The City’s Executive Mayor, Alderman Patricia de Lille; the Mayoral Committee Member for Transport, Roads and Stormwater, Councillor Brett Herron; and the Executive Director for Transport, Roads and Stormwater, Melissa Whitehead will deliver addresses at the summit.
The media are invited to attend the morning session of the summit.
Date: Friday 24 February 2012
Time: 08h00 – 13h00
Venue: Council Chamber, 6th floor, Podium Block, Civic Centre, Hertzog Boulevard
The summit seeks to:
Elicit views and perspectives from leading role-players on the immediate action agenda;
- Establish the climate for partnerships at the inter-governmental and stakeholder level;
- Facilitate the establishment of a single point of authority for integrated transport systems and operations across the city;
- Develop an Action Plan for the next five years;
- Agree upon the mandate to the City and protocols for the integration of rail- and road-based scheduled public transport.
After a successful 2010 FIFA World Cup™ event service the City of Cape Town will end the MyCiTi inner city loop this weekend and re-launch an improved inner city public transport route later this year.
