[LISTEN] Has there been progress on the National Land Transport Act?

Independent Transport Analyst Paul Browning says a public transport strategy which aims to see 85% of the South African city population living within one kilometre of an integrated public transport will not be achieved by 2020.

The strategy forms part of the National Land Transport Act that requires all major municipalities to develop integrated public transport plans with the help of professional transport operators.

Browning joined Azania Mosaka on her show, to talk about the progress of the legislation.

The Act itself was merely legislation. It was preceded by a public transport strategy approved by cabinet in 2007 and that said by 2020, 85% of our big city population would live within 1km of an integrated public transport network. I think we can safely say we are not going to achieve that by 2020;

Paul Browning, Independent Transport Analyst

The challenge is two fold, one is the actually capacity of our transport planners to implement these grand plans. The other one is the minibus taxis, it would have been nice if the taxi industry said we love this idea and we going to fall in with it, form companies and be contractors. Local government has not been able to persuade the two.
