Cape Town - The MyCiTi vehicle-operating company, Kidrogen, is to step in to help hundreds of commuters left stranded in Khayelitsha and Mitchells Plain after the N2 Express joint venture was still suspended.
Kidrogen chief executive Andile Peter said the company was willing to assist commuters while the City and the N2 Express continued negotiations. Kidrogen provides the MyCiTi services for Dunoon and Table View to CBD routes.
“We cannot rest while our people are struggling. We are prepared to assist in any way we can,” Peter said.
ANC leader in the Cape Town council Xolani Sotashe said in a briefing on Wednesday they could not sit back and watch commuters being victims of circumstances beyond their control.
Sotashe said the ANC had initiated a meeting with Mayor Dan Plato to find amicable solutions to the MyCiTi problems.
