Codeta and cata can now operate on bellville public transport interchange

Rival taxi associations Codeta and Cata are now allowed to operate normally from the Bellville public transport interchange. Western Cape Transport MEC Daylin Mitchell has amended regulations to allow their vehicles to load commuters at the rank. This comes after the two associations a signed a peace agreement on Monday.

The MEC and national Transport Minister Fikile Mbalula closed route B97 between Mbekweni and Bellville to all minibus taxi operations more than a week ago following ongoing taxi violence. However, the Paarl loading lane at the rank would remain closed.

Taxis found operating on the route would be fined R5,000 and vehicles impounded.
