The launch, which is phased, is outlined below:
- Since Monday 9 May 2011, MyCiTi buses are running along the red trunk route on the R27 between the Table View and Civic Centre bus stations. They will not stop at any of the stations in between. The service will run between 09:00 and 15:00 from Monday to Friday. Buses will depart on an hourly basis from the Civic Centre and Table View stations. Tickets for the service will cost R10,00 per trip.
- On Saturday 14 May 2011, the full trunk service started operating with the buses stopping at all stations along the trunk route.The interim inner-city feeder route, called the Gardens-Civic Centre-Waterfront route, will also begin operating. This route will run between the Civic Centre and Green Point, the Waterfront, the Loop and Long Street areas and Gardens. Tickets for the feeder routes will cost R5,00 per trip, but travel on the feeder routes is free when used in conjunction with a trunk route trip, which costs R10,00.
- Over the weekend of Saturday 21 May and Sunday 22 May 2011, all of the Table View feeder services will also start operating. These will cover Big Bay, Table View, Parklands and Blaauwberg – also linking up to the trunk service.
