The Western Cape continued its public hearings today ahead of moves to regulate companies, like Uber and Taxify.
The National Land Transport Amendment Bill - which some have dubbed the 'Uber Bill' - will see e-hailing services regulated and brought in line with other meter-taxi operators.
The provincial hearings kicked off on Tuesday night in George and will conclude later on Wednesday in Cape Town.
