South Africa : Gauteng Roads and Transport embarks on Metered Taxi Outreach Programme.

As part of the Provincial Governments continued interventions in the Metered Taxi industry, the Department of Roads and Transport will during October Transport Month, embark on a Metered Taxi Outreach Programme at various licensing offices.

MEC Ismail Vadi explains that the outreach programme is aimed at fast-tracking outstanding licensing applications that meet compliance requirements within the broader metered taxi category. "Operators with receipts that confirm that their applications were received by the department will be serviced during the planned regional visits," says Vadi.

Vadi added that it is important to note that the Portfolio Committee on Transport in the National Assembly is currently addressing the issue of the legal status of e-hailing services and is considering appropriate amendments to the National Land Transport Act (2009).
