This transport authority is part of the 25 year old plan to restructure the impractical transport system developed under apartheid. The poorest members of society bear the brunt of the current cumbersome system.
A consultation session on the shape and mode of a transport authority is underway. This conference is the start of Gauteng’s plan for an integrated transport system linking metros and municipalities under one authority.
Experts from around the world and locally are getting together to get this plan up and running.
The Gauteng MEC for Roads and Transport spoke to John Robbie about this vision.
