The National Taxi Alliance has confirmed that the impending stay away by taxi drivers tomorrow morning has been called off after the taxi associations recieved confirmation that the impounded taxis would be returned.

Taxi associations in Mamelodi had threatened government that if impounded taxis were not released, they would escalate this morning's stay away to a provincial level.

This morning thousands of commuters were left stranded without a way to get to work after taxi associations announced last night that they would not be operating today.

Xolani spoke to National Taxi Alliance Secretary General, Alpheus Mlalazi who confirmed that taxi's would be operating tomorrow morning:

Tomorrow they won't be stranded, taxis will be oprating normally
