Transport minister meets with taxi industry representatives

Transport Minister Jeff Radebe is meeting taxi operators in Cape Town today in the last round of consultations before the implementation of the Taxi Recapitalisation Programme. Radebe’s spokesperson Collen Msibi says the Western Cape Taxi Council is attending a meeting in the Civic Centre to discuss key issues related to the programme. This includes the conversion of permits to operating licences, the scrapping of old taxis and the purchasing of new vehicles. Msibi says they are optimistic that the implementation of the long-awaited programme will start in the next two to three months. Meetings will be held countrywide to check the state of readiness of the taxi industry.
