According to research done by Lightstone - using information provided by Tracker - in peak traffic a trip from Kuilsriver to Cape Town CBD could take about 66 minutes.
However, if you leave home just after 8am it takes just about 37 minutes.
Analytics director at Lightstone, Paul-Roux de Kock, says the survey has also shown that people in Cape Town wake up early in order to beat traffic.
In Cape Town compared to Joburg the worst time is around 06:00 - 06:30 to get to the CBD.— Paul-Roux de Kock, Analytics director at Lightstone
The research looked at the time difference from all major residential areas like Bellville, Kuilsriver and Milnerton.
From Kuilsriver, if you leave around 5am it will take you less than 40 minutes to get to town but if you leave around 6am it shoots up to around an hour.— Paul-Roux de Kock, Analytics director at Lightstone
