Shared minibuses operate in the central business district (CBD) and Atlantic Seaboard areas. With routes to Sea Point, Camps Bay, Green Point or the city centre, they can be found on Sea Point Main Road/Regent Street. This is a frequent service during the day and they are easy to spot as there is a person in the front of the car shouting where the taxi is going to. All you need to is to wave them down and the taxi will stop where you are.


Metered Taxis

Both metered taxis and the ride sharing service UBER (download the Uber app) are available in Cape Town.



South Africa has a good road network, mostly tarred and well signposted. The speed limit is 120km/h on highways and approximately 60km/h within the city. If students intend hiring a car, they should remember to keep to the LEFT hand side of the road. It is preferable to have an international driver’s license with you although most car rental companies will accept a foreign driver’s license. Drivers under 21 may have difficulties hiring a car as additional deposits may be required.
