#AskTheRedBusSA: Will the winter timetable affect your red-bus journey?

  • 10 May 2017

Winter is here, meaning sunrise is much later and sunset earlier. To make sure all red-bus guests can make the most of their experience, we have changed over to our winter timetable. Worried about whether this will affect your trip? Here’s all you need to know about the winter timetable:

From May until 22 September, the red bus runs according to the winter timetable. This means that the first bus departs slightly later and the last bus will make its final round slightly earlier than in summer. Taking into account the early winter sunsets, Cape Town’s Sunset Bus is also suspended until 23 September 2017.
