Need to get to classes at Michaelis Art School and University of Cape Town’s Upper campus? Why not go by bike – save some money and skip the parking hassles and traffic jams. Commuting by bike to the UCT has never been easier. UCT has recently installed new cycle infrastructure and started a dedicated bicycle rental scheme – Jammie Bike. A project of UCT’s Properties and Services Department and the Green Campus Initiative, Jammie Bikes aims to encourage those who do not have access to bicycles to rent them for travel to campus. Currently there are 200, 21-speed mountain bicycles available for rent annually at R1800 each (of which R800 is refundable).
