The People Mover bus service connects CBD locations with the beachfront, Peoples Space and ICC. R4/journey, frequent service.
Minibus Taxi’s control some routes around town. Short journey should be about R4. Be aware when catching. Never get into an empty minibus, or one with only men inside. Dont feel pressured to take one you’re not comfortable with, the touts will try to get you to use theirs rather than a competitor. Its how the majority of South Africans travel, and bring you face to face with the people that you never meet from the confines of your car.
