The People Mover

If you're wanting to get around Durban's cbd and golden mile, then the People Mover should be your choice of public transport. The Circle Line, City Line and Beach Lines cover all major stopping points including the Moses Mabhida Stadium, Suncoast Casino, Ushaka, City Hall, Playhouse, Victoria Market, Addington Hospital, Botanic Gardens, China Mall and Durban Station. Lines are connected through transfer stations situated along all the routes. The buses are modern, clean, safe, have aircon for those hot durban days and have great staff who're all friendly and eager to help if you have any questions. Security guards are situated at each stop and there are security cameras in the buses and stops as well. One thing I really like about the people mover as well is that it's wheel chair friendly. The pricing is great. A single trip will set you back R5.50, while a day pass is only R16. There is also the Muvo card which works very similar to an Oyster card. With your ID/Passport and R50, you'll get your card with 10 trips so you're able to get around without cash.  Their website should be up and running soon where you can get more information on the Muvo cards. I use the people mover a couple times a month and always look forward to my trip into the city while reading a book or just enjoying the ride. It beats driving through the traffic.  Thanx to bus drivers, Iqbal, Babsy and Deena who allowed us to interview them for our coverage of the people mover. 

Operating hours: 5am - 10.30pm
