AARTO (Traffic Offences) Amendment Bill

The AARTO Amendment Bill seeks to amend many of the current provisions of the AARTO Act in preparation for national implementation – whereafter the long awaited points-demerit system is expected to be introduced.

“This may sound like good news to law-abiding motorists who have grown tired of the lawlessness on our roads, but there are numerous provisions of the AARTO Act which, along with the proposed amendments, will literally make your hair stand on end,” says JPSA’s chairperson, Howard Dembovsky.

The Provincial Government has asked for your input and comment ahead of the national roll-out of AARTO. Please participate, by clicking this link to our website.

We have highlighted a number of points of serious concern which affect you directly, including; your ability to exercise your constitutional right to a fair trial by electing to be tried in court is to be removed entirely. - Take a look.

If you don’t take any action, your inaction will be regarded as tacit agreement with the provisions of the AARTO Amendment Bill.

DO NOT allow the same thing to happen with the AARTO Amendment Bill as happened with e-tolls. If the AARTO Amendment Bill is passed into law, it will only be a matter of time before it affects us as motorists and it will be too late for tears.

Be an Active Citizen, participate and take control of your democracy.

As this is a participation process and not just a petition or poll, please take the time to read the summary or download the AARTO Amendment Bill and AARTO Act before making comments - available on our page.

Cape Town's MyCiTi Bus service can take you to 20 Tourist attractions. See maps in the PDF at the bottom of the Tourist Info page.

 Motorcar driving licences or motorcar licence renewal (or new licence): a new regulation requires all owners of vehicles to present ID documents and proof of address and postal address. 
Good News for Cape Town residents and Tourists who want to go up Table Mountain:
FREE Shuttle bus service from Kloof Nek to the Lower Cableway station, and back.
 (This means you can park more easily at Kloof Nek and avoid the congestion along Tafelberg road)
The MyCiTi free shuttle bus service leaves Kloof Nek for the Lower Cable Station
The MyCiTi shuttle service to the Upper Table Mountain stop is free of charge, meaning visitors only need to pay on Route 107 (Camps Bay) from the central business district to the top of Kloof Nek Road, where they can disembark at the Kloof Nek Stop situated at the Kloof Nek Road/Tafelberg Road intersection. From there, visitors should transfer to the Route 110 bus – the free Table Mountain shuttle service – to the Upper Tafelberg stop and disembark at the cableway station,’ said Councillor Herron.
The same applies to passengers who are departing from the cableway station: they embark at the Upper Tafelberg stop and will transfer to MyCiTi Route 107 at the Kloof Nek Stop at the Kloof Nek Road/Tafelberg Road intersection. 
Passengers can expect a bus on the Table Mountain service every 10 minutes or so, with the summer service commencing at 07:00 and the last bus departing from the Lower Cable Station at 19:00. 
Those who do not have myconnect cards can purchase single trip cards at a cost of R30 each at the kiosks at the MyCiTi stations in order to get to Kloof Nek. Similarly there are single trip card dispensers at Kloof Nek Info centre, and at the Lower Cableway station. 
Passengers should please note that they will need to buy two single trip cards per person (one to travel to Kloof Nek and another to travel back to the area where they have parked). Children under four travel for free on ALL the MyCiTi buses. 
Passengers are requested to familiarise themselves with the operational hours of the kiosks as these differ from the general operational hours of the MyCiTi stations.
‘The single trip cards will make it more convenient and easy for those who are unaccustomed to the MyCiTi service and we urge residents to give the MyCiTi service a try,’ said Councillor Herron.
