CAPE TOWN – The City of Cape Town says MyCiTi bus commuters in Khayelitsha will soon feel safer as lights will be installed at bus stops.

The city on Sunday announced it had been given the greenlight to start with the R2.6 million project.

Brett Herron, Cape Town's mayoral committee member for transport and urban development, says: “For a long time we were unable to illuminate the bus shelters in Khayelitsha because there was no electricity. We’re thrilled that Eskom now supplies there and we can illuminate the shelters.”

Herron says lights are to be installed at 31 MyCiTi bus stops by the end of this year.
