Century City is located adjacent to the N1 freeway that connects Central Cape Town CBD to the northern metropolitan suburbs and beyond.
Any successful mixed-use development of the size of Century City, particularly one that includes a major regional shopping centre, generates heavy traffic flows especially in the morning and afternoon peaks and over holiday periods.

A collector road, adjacent and parallel to the N1 provides direct access from the freeway into the heart of Century City and sets a precedent for access convenience. Shoppers bound for Canal Walk Shopping Centre can drive over a steel bridge directly on to the upper levels of the shopping centre parking garage.
Alternative road access into the site is available from the Bosmansdam Road to the North, Sable Road (which also links to the N1 freeway) to the south and Ratanga Road to the West.
In addition, Century City is located in close proximity to both the N7 and M5 arterial roads putting it in easy access to both the West Coast and Southern Suburbs.
Century City is well serviced by the various modes of public transport. A primary public transport interchange operates off Ratanga Road and a second off Century Avenue.
Both have designated lanes for minibus taxis and MyCiTi Busses and a terminus building with public toilets, waiting areas, public telephones, a ticket office and vending machines.
Commuter buses and minibus taxis are not permitted on the Century City road network and their operations are restricted to the transport interchanges.
