The six-week suspension of the Jammie Shuttle Claremont Route has been lifted. The shuttle, which transports UCT students and staff between Claremont and UCT Upper Campus was temporarily withdrawn after a female driver was threatened at gunpoint.

Taxi groups operating in the Claremont area accused the university of robbing them of their livelihood by illegally transporting its staff and students along this route. Even though an investigation undertaken by the City of Cape Town concluded that UCT and Sibanye, who was appointed to operate the service on UCT's behalf, had run the transport service legally, all operations all the route remained suspended due to the threat of violence.

Jammie Shuttles provide a much-needed transport service to UCT staff and students from the campus to various locations in the City. A total of approximately 30000 passengers are ferried to the shuttle stops on a daily basis.

George Maluka, the Chief Executive of Sibanye, confirmed that the service along the route had restarted, and further stated that the protesting taxi groups had still not met his challenge to produce their own authorisation to operate along that route.
