Tech Conversations I Yamkela Spengane Technology researcher

Tech Conversations

Taxi industry and technology

One of the things that transport minister Fikile Mbalula always raises around the taxi industry is that of formalisation…for the subsidy to be considered. The taxi industry is also protesting against the relief fund which they deem not enough and demanding R20 000 for each taxi.

When it comes to the taxi industry and its adoption of technology, how far is that?

SHOP STEWARDS CORNER : Midday Mali South African National Taxi Council, Gauteng Spokesperson

SHOP STEWARDS CORNER

THE TAXI INDUSTRY

Transport minister Fikile Mbalula says the government is not able to provide more than the R1bn relief it is offering the taxi industry.
Today, commuters were left stranded across Gauteng when the SA National Taxi Council (Santaco) took to the streets in protest over the relief.
Roads were barricaded and a bus was hijacked as Santaco demanded R20,000 per vehicle.The minister said his plans for the industry included formalising it to allow taxi drivers, marshals and owners to enjoy the same benefits as workers. His plans would also see commuters pay lower taxi fares
