Free Public Transport to the Grand Parade for Screening of Nelson Mandela: A Life Celebrated Event

11 December 2013

The response to Cape Town’s own tribute to Madiba at the Cape Town Stadium – Nelson Mandela: A Life Celebrated – is heartening.

With all available coupons for the event on Wednesday 11 December 2013 having been collected so quickly, the City would like to give those who weren’t able to get coupons a chance to still witness the homage to Madiba by screening the event on the Grand Parade.

The stadium event will be screened on the Grand Parade from 16:00 when it starts.

For those attending the screening of the event on the Grand Parade, free public transport has been made available into and out of the city on the MyCiTi bus service, Golden Arrow Bus Services, and Metrorail. This transport will be available from 12:00 to 15:00 inbound and from 19:00 onwards outbound.

The City would like to once again appeal to coupon-holders to please give away any coupons that they are not using. This is the best way of honouring Madiba: ensuring that as many people as possible can attend the event. Anyone who has spare coupons or coupons they cannot use is encouraged to give these coupons to friends, family members, or even strangers who they know will make use of them.
