City of Cape Town will be engaging with the taxi industry at an industry wide level through a series of monthly meetings.

Mayor Helen Zille says the City is committed to the successful implementation of the Integrated Rapid Transport System and engagement with the taxi industry is an important part of the way forward.

Zille says in a statement that the first of these meetings will be held on the 8th of next month. She says these monthly meetings will give everybody an opportunity for broad dialogue between the city and the industry.

City Spokeperson Elizabeth Thompson says after the meeting it is now clear the last weeks taxi violence was not entirely about the BRT system, but also divisions in the taxi body.
