Cape Town - The Mother City

Cape Town was the first established city in South Africa. Its history as the city that gave birth to a nation is part of the reason Cape Town is affec­tion­ately known as the “Mother City”. Cape Town and its surroundings contain a wealth of natural beauty of every conceivable sort – from majestic mountains to deep blue seas, framed by sandy beaches. Must-see attractions include: Table Mountain, the nearby wine routes, Boulders Beach and the Kirsten­bosch Botanical Gardens.

Traffic challenges in Cape Town

Continually rising fuel costs throughout South Africa, frequent power outages that adversely affect traffic flow and an increase in privately owned vehicles on the roads, are some of the contrib­uting factors to traffic congestion in Cape Town. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. A rapidly-in­creasing population, limited public transport options and many more factors are also making the streets challenging to navigate at the best of times. Major routes include the N2 Highway, which ultimately connects Cape Town and Johan­nesburg, the N1, which stretches all the way to the Zimbabwean border – Beit Bridge, Long Street in Central Cape Town and Route 62, which flows through the Cape Winelands.

Why is a fleet management solution partic­u­larly useful in a congested city like Cape Town? Due to heavy traffic during the day and specifically in peak hours, each vehicle spends about 35% more on the road (a total of 20,150 kilometres in and around the city). That means an average commercial vehicle driver wastes more than 163 hours per year while sitting in traffic.
