      Top Tips

      The leg between and runs right beside the ocean. The journey is worth it for this view alone!
      The MetroPlus tickets don’t appear to be checked on the trains and the MetroPlus cabins don’t seem to be any different from the ordinary cabins. It might be worth not bothering and saving yourself a few rand.
      Don’t expect to find much in the way of platform facilities, such as visible timetables or shops that are actually open.
      The line between Fish Hoek and Simon’s Town is currently closed, but replacement buses covering this leg (using Translux and City to City) are quick and efficient.
