Public transport in Durban during the 2010 World Cup

Durban is trying to cut the use of private transportation in the 2010 World Cup affected areas to a minimum and has therefore installed a pretty impressive public transport system. The fact that all World Cup attractions in Durban are within walking distance of each other, makes it even more easy not to use your (rental) car.
Heart of Durban's 2010 World Cup public transport plan is The Centrum (adjacent to the Workshop Shopping Centre in the city center; see map!). The Centrum will be the hub of the transport system and will be well-managed to ensure the system operates at maximum efficiency and users receive whatever assistance they might need in reaching their next destination.

From the Centrum pre-designated Fan-Routes will enable fans to walk to the Moses Mabhida Stadium, or the Fan Fest and beachfront.
Please visit Durban's 2010 World Cup website for more info on transport options during the World Cup and/or make use of the specially made Journey Planner, which will calculate for you travel schedules, provide you with timetables fares and important contact information.

UPDATE (09 June 2010): The Municipality will operate special shuttle services between the CBD transport hub next to the Workshop complex and several shopping centres (Galleria, Pavilion and Gateway), as well as between the CBD transport hub and the new King Shaka International Airport.
