Cape Town Sports & Outdoors: 48 reviews and 56 photos

Details on the public transport arrangements for the World Cup stadia continue to be issued in drips and drabs. The most comprehensive and user-friendly useful summary I've seen was from Prega Govender in this morrning's Sunday Times - follow this link:


Please note that private vehicles (including taxis) will NOT be allowed close to the stadia, so if you are planning to travel to the stadia in your own or someone else's vehicle, be prepared for a long walk (and potentially problems finding your taxi pick up after the game).

It seems like it will be a long journey to the stadia, but then with excitement at fever pitch and national pride running high, this is all part of the experience!

Let the games begin!

Park and Ride fees: Free at railway stations and the University of Cape Town. Parking at Kronendal Primary School sports field in Hout Bay and Camps Bay High School expected to cost between R10 and R30. Pay for parking ticket on entry. An extra 7000 parking bays available at 25 railway stations.
Rail travel is free for match ticket holders.
A free shuttle bus for match ticket holders will run between the Civic Centre bus station and the Cape Town Stadium in Green Point. Service will operate from six hours before kickoff until four hours after the final whistle. Buses will leave every three minutes, depending on demand.
The Hout Bay bus service will run from Hout Bay to the Civic Centre bus station along Atlantic Seaboard via Camps Bay, Sea Point and Cape Town stadium. It will operate from four hours before kick off until 2am. Cost of journey to be based on distance travelled.
