The Transport and Urban Development Authority (TDA) is the City of Cape Town’s driving force for achieving a more equal society based on integrated opportunities, economic inclusion, and access to opportunities.  TDA combines the functions of the old Transport for Cape Town (TCT) with spatial planning and urban development, the management of environmental resources and affordable housing so the City of Cape Town can align its policies and strategies to address the challenges it currently faces.
