For many of the 55 million South Africans, getting to key tourist destinations in the Western Cape is unaffordable.

While buses are available around the city centre and surrounds, visiting heritage destinations such as Cape Point and the winelands are out of reach for many citizens.

According to Martin Bo Nielsen, co-founder of Cape Comoot, a newly launched transport service in Cape Town, “The issue of affordability is one of the main reasons we started Cape Comoot, which we believe is an ‘alternative public transport’ service. We are passionate about making a difference to communities,” says Nielsen.

He explains that a normal ride from Cape Town city centre to Franschhoek or Cape Point would break the bank for most citizens. Currently a single visitor to Cape Town cannot get to and from Cape Point or Franschhoek for under R550, and that requires joining a tour of up to 50 people.

“To get to these destinations, visitors need to join a tour group, hire a car, take a hotel shuttle facility, a taxi service such as Uber, or hire a private operator. These are expensive options, a taxi would cost around R600 one-way and a shuttle service from a hotel is typically around R700 – R800,” he says.

Cape Comoot will initially run from Greenmarket Square to Cape Point and Franschhoek and will cost only R99 for a one-way trip. The company has plans to expand to Stellenbosch and Hermanus in the near future.

  • Cape Comoot opens for bookings from 4 May and will begin running from the 1st of June.
  • Tickets can only be booked online at
  • As a start there will be 2 daily departure times to each destination which will increase soon
