Directions to the Lower Cableway Station:
Driving: The Lower Cableway Station is on Tafelberg Road, off Kloof Nek Road, and about a 15-minute drive from the city centre. Just before turning left onto Tafelberg Road, look out for a digital signboard on your right, which indicates whether we are open or closed.
Be on the lookout for directional boards as you come into the city centre on major routes.
Public Transport: The Cableway can be reached by public transport: the Cape Town Integrated Rapid Transit system, MyCiTi, stops right outside the Lower Cable Station. The MyCiTi bus route that runs from the V&A Waterfront to Camps Bay (route number 106 and 107, Waterfront Silo / Civic Centre / Camps Bay) stops at the top of Kloof Nek Road. Hop off there and take the free MyCiTi shuttle service (route 110) that runs from Kloof Nek Road, up Tafelberg Road and to the Lower Cableway Station. You can also stop here if coming from Camps Bay. The free service runs from when we open until 7pm every day.
The bus departs from the Civic Centre in Hertzog Boulevard. There are a number of MyCiTi bus stops in the city centre.
Every passenger needs their own myconnect card loaded with money, except for children under four years old and less than one metre tall, who travel free. Cash is not accepted on the buses.
