Every person over the age of 4 needs to produce a ‘myconnect card’ to use the MyCiti bus service. The card costs only R30 and money can be loaded onto the card as standard fares or as points with mover packages which reduce the fare rates by 30%, however there are options to buy one way trip cards as well. All cards may be purchased from any of the MyCiti station Kiosks or participating retailers. There is a detailed map of every single retailer offering MyCiti cards on their website.
