Getting to work from Khayelitsha by bus
GroundUp journalist Nokobonga Yawa explains how she travels to work in Rondebosch from one of Khayelitsha’s suburbs.
To get to work in Rondebosch from Makhaza, a section of Khayelitsha, I have to take a Golden Arrow bus. While there are buses directly from Khayelitsha to Rondebosch, they are scarce. So most of the time people travelling my route will take a bus to Claremont and then take another one to Rondebosch. I have a weekly bus ticket costing R88.
Nikelwa Mkhutsgulwa, who travels the route to Claremont, wakes up at 05:40, rushing for the 06:30 bus. She works in Lansdowne. She can walk to work from her bus stop, but it takes her an hour and a half to get to work by 8am.
