Train - Cape Town Central Station is situated in the heart of the city, while an extensive rail system connects the city centre with the rest of the region and the greater Western Cape.

By Canal - The unique Roggebaai canal offers a relaxed, charming journey via water taxi between the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront and the CTICC.

On Foot - The centralised and compact nature of the city means that walking is often the transport mode of choice for visitors.

On Two Wheels - Given the temperate climate and abundance of safe routes around the city, bicycles are fast becoming a very popular form of transport for visitors. As part of its commitment to minimising its carbon footprint, the CTICC encourages the use of this mode of transport and the proposed expansion will even include a dedicated bicycle hiring facility.
