Cableway Hits Milestone of 16 Millionth Passenger
Warm sunny weather and a breathtaking view of Cape Town formed the perfect backdrop to greet the 16 millionth passenger on Table Mountain Cableway.
Boitumelo Saku-Ramolefe, mother of two from Mafikeng, North West Province , shrieked with surprise when she was told that she was the Cableway’s 16 millionth passenger. Being a Geography teacher she always makes sure that she visits the Cableway when in Cape Town. Says Saku-Ramolefe; “Table Mountain is always part of my site seeing itinerary in Cape Town. You cannot come to Cape Town without going up Table Mountain.”
“It is fitting that in this, the year of our 75th anniversary, we end the year with the celebration of our 16 millionth passenger” says Sabine Lehmann, Group General Manager of the Cableway. The Cableway currently transports an average of 800 000 passengers per year to the summit.
