CAPE TOWN – Construction of water and electricity efficient MyCiTi bus depots is set to begin in Cape Town next month.

The depots will be constructed at Mitchells Plain and Khayelitsha. City officials have said the multi-million rand project will include parking, maintenance infrastructure and offices.

Mayor Geordin Hill-Lewis expects the improvements to be complete by mid-2025. “[They] will be state-of-the-art facilities designed to make maximum use of scarce and limited resources. Depot buildings will be oriented and shaped in response to the direction of the sun to channel reflective light into the buildings to minimize the need for artificial light. Motion detectors will be linked to all internal lighting to keep electricity consumption to a minimum,” he said.
