Urban Mobility can be defined as Cape Town’s cardiovascular system. We need healthy arteries where the lifeblood moves without blockages and the integrated public transport system – from trains to buses to minibus-taxis and e-hailing services – acts as the beating heart that connects people with opportunities.

Our road networks must enable business activity and job creation. Transport services must keep us moving, and ensure goods and services are delivered. Capetonians must be able to move, efficiently, and be spoilt for choice when it comes to commuting, be it for work or leisure.

These choices must be affordable and sustainable. It is simple: the more mobile our people, goods, and services, the better our chances of economic recovery. Productivity, job creation, and investment go hand in hand with an efficient, well-run, and reliable transport system. The focus is beyond transport as we need to work closer with other spheres of government, and partners in the private sector to achieve greater connectivity across Cape Town.
