The proposed new model will aim to bring benefits to the entire minibus-taxi industry and not only those who are affected by the roll-out of the MyCiTi bus service. If approved by Council next month, Transport for Cape Town, the City’s transport authority, will embark on a process to assist the minibus-taxi associations to form companies.
‘I am confident that this proposed new model will assist in improving the overall conditions for those commuters who make use of minibus-taxis to reach their destinations. Once the minibus-taxi industry is transformed into formal businesses, other road users and employees within the taxi industry and the City will also reap the fruits as it will be in the minibus-taxi operators’ financial interest to improve self-regulation and service standards,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member: Transport for Cape Town, Councillor Brett Herron.
