The Western Cape Transport and Public Works on Thursday approved 201 metered taxi operating licences.

In a statement the department said various engagements have taken place between the provincial government, The City of Cape Town, and Uber.

Partners have agreed that Uber partners will apply for metered taxi operating licences while amendments are effected to the National Land Transport Act to accommodate this new mode.

Ministerial Spokesperson Siphesihle Dube said of the 201 approved applications, 145 were from Uber partners. These applications were supported by the City of Cape Town.

“With the decision to award these operating licenses follows a period of careful consideration and continued engagement with the City of Cape Town, the relevant planning authority, as required by the National Land Transport Act.” Dube concluded.
