The MyCiti N2 Express bus service has officially resumed operations on Saturday, 19 February.
The service was suspended at the end of May 2019.
The resumption comes after a new operating contract was signed with the N2 Company.
The Express bus service operates between Mitchells Plain, Khayelitsha and the Cape Town CBD.
Mayor Geordin Hill-Lewis partook in the festivities and joined passengers on a trip to the CBD.
The City of Cape Town will, over a period of four weeks, gradually add more buses to the routes as more commuters return to the service.
The intention is to have the whole fleet of 34 buses operational by 19 March 2022.

Premier Alan Winde has encouraged Mother City residents to make use of the Vaxi Taxi initiative to get their Covid-19 vaccine.
The initiative uses two EMS ambulances and visits residents in their communities, allowing easier access to an injection.
Since its launch in October, the initiative has already vaccinated around 2000 Cape Town residents in the Gugulethu, Kuilsriver and Khayelitsha communities.
