The environmentally friendly Green Bus to Cape Point
Care for the environment is at the forefront of most people’s minds these days. A group of local entrepreneurs known as the “Green Ladies” are providing an innovative and environmentally friendly transport service between Cape Town, Hout Bay, Noordhoek and Cape point with a stopover at Noordhoek farm village. The company’s fleet has been modified to run on liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and a biodiesel blend utilising vegetable oil or animal fat and used cooking oil, which results in significantly reduced carbon dioxide emissions. LPG used in taxi, limousine or shuttle services can achieve carbon dioxide savings of up to 12%, compared to nomal petrol-driven vehicles. Vehicles running on biodiesel fuel can achieve carbon dioxide savings of between 15% and 90%, compared to standard diesel vehicles.
The Green bus offers a shuttle service from the offices of Cape Town tourism in Burg Street, and travels along the beautiful Atlantic seaboard to Hout Bay, over spectacular Chapman’s peak drive; one of the world’s most breath-taking coastal scenic drives to Noordhoek farm village where there is a 30 min stopover and where those staying in Noordhoek holiday accommodation can board the bus to continue along the scenic Atlantic Ocean coast through quaint coastal villages such as Misty cliffs and Scarborough to the Cape of Good Hope & Cape Point.
The company offers two options :
The Green Drive at a cost of R 460 return which will take you the full route from Cape Town to Cape Point where there is a 90 min stopover for sightseeing photography and refreshments. The shuttle departs Cape Town at 09:30 and returns to drop off passengers in Cape Town at approximately 15:30.
The Green Pass is an option for those living out of the city to board the bus at the Hout Bay offices of Cape Town tourism in Andrews Road for pickup at 10:10 at a return cost of R430 or to board the bus at Noordhoek farm village at 11:00 at a return cost of R 390.
