The city of Cape Town welcomes a new and affordable shuttle service for tourists, Cape Comoot, which will run from Greenmarket Square to Cape Point and Franschhoek. Currently, the Uber trip to Franschhoek costs R600 rand one-way and a shuttle service from a hotel is R700. A tour bus will also cost you R550 – thanks to the new Cape Comoot shuttle service as tourists will now pay R99 only for a one-way trip.
According to Martin Bo Nielsen, the founder of Cape Comoot, Cape Town has become a mainstream destination with tourists expecting the same service, facilities and convenience found at destinations such as London, Tokyo or Paris. Cape Comoot will offer them exactly that.
“Tourists come to South Africa and expect public transport to tourism sites outside of the city centres. The independent travelers also want to go directly to their destinations, without the inconvenience of sitting through twenty stops along the way.”
“Through our Cape Town Free Walking Tours, guests ask us all the time if there are any simple public transport options to destinations outside Cape Town,” says Nielsen.
Cape Comoot’s shuttles might be the cheapest, but the company is certainly not skimping on quality. Cape Comoot currently has a network of drivers with quality shuttles that have air conditioning, free Wifi, and mobile phone charging stations, redefining what cheap transport means.
