7 things only people who take the MyCiti bus will really understand

2014-07-17 13:46

Cape Town – We are totally in love with Cape Town's super efficient public transport system. The MyCiti bus has made life so much easier (and cheaper)!

Sometimes, while sitting on the bus, we even pretend to be in London or New York. Living the real city life.

While taking the bus to work every day we did notice a few things.

Here are 7 honest observations we made while taking the MyCiti bus:

1) The awkward little run:

We've all had that moment when you see your bus pull up, but you’re not quite there yet! Run, Forest. Run!

You think you look like this:


But you actually look like this:


2) The quick step:

Those 3 awkward seconds you have from swiping your card to getting a seat in which you have to avoid eye-contact with complete strangers and secure your footing before you stumble forward like a newly born Bambi bokkie and end up face first in a strangers lap.


3) The germ spreader

We've all had a sneezer. Sharing isn't caring in this case.

We always react like this:


4) The pusher:

It's Friday afternoon. Everyone wants to get home. Nobody wants to stand.

Note to self: wait for the next bus, or be shoved!


5) The singer:

The karaoke queen is often rather enthusiastic about a Britney Spears song that would sound so much better when sung in the shower.


6) The sauna effect:

When the bus is so hot and clammy and you slowly open the window to a crowd of death stares. Come on people. We need fresh air!

You feel like this:


So you do this:


And everyone else looks at you like this:

7) The armpit tango:

When standing on the overcrowded bus you inadvertently swing back and forth - unwillingly caught up in some sick tango with a strangers armpit!


Keep it classy bus riders. You're not alone!
