New taxi programme to be announced next week

Government is expected to announce the long awaited Scrapping Administration Agency that is part of its multi-billion Rand Taxi Recapitilisation Programme next week. This emerged at a meeting between Transport Minister Jeff Radebe and all transport MECs in Cape Town. The Agency will administer the scrapping of unsafe minibus taxis in exchange for 50-thousand rands for those who wish to leave the industry or obtain new and safer vehicles. BuaNews reports that the programme will be operational by the first of July and will initially focus on very old minibus taxis, of which ten thousand will have been scrapped by the end of the year.
