Transport & parking

How to get around

Travel at UCT starts with the Jammie Shuttle, but there are a range of public and private transport options to help you get around campus and the city.

Hop on, hop off

  • The Jammie Shuttle is the easiest way to get from point A to B. The service is available to students and staff (if you show your staff or student card) and runs weekdays, weekends and holidays both during term time and over vacations. It also includes a late-night service.

  • Golden Arrow buses are easily accessible from Main Road, Rondebosch, and the Jammie Shuttle stops in Claremont and Mowbray.

  • MyCiTi integrates with the Jammie Shuttle at the Gardens station in Buitenkant Street. From there you can head into Vredehoek, Oranjezicht and the city centre. The rapid bus service also runs to Salt River, Woodstock, Table View, Century City, the West Coast, Khayelitsha, Mitchells Plain, and the Atlantic Seaboard all the way to Llandudno and Hout Bay.

Minibus taxis

Minibus taxis pick up and drop off passengers along virtually every main route in the city. The Mowbray and Claremont Jammie Shuttle stops are a few steps away from minibus taxi hubs, and there are multiple stops near some UCT residences.


Cape Town’s rail service fans out across the city. The Southern Line stops at Mowbray, Observatory, Rosebank and Rondebosch stations, which are all within walking distance of UCT’s lower, middle and upper campuses.
