The theme for Transport Month, which will run concurrently with the EcoMobility Festival in Sandton, is, Transport, moving the Gauteng City Region Forward’.

MMC for the City of Johannesburg, Christine Walters, said she was very happy with the programmes set up for Transport Month and urges all residents to become an EcoMobility agent.

She added, “Behind all this there is a healthy lifestyle that we all can benefit from.”

The event saw members of various taxi associations who will work with the provincial government to be integrated into the public transport sector.

MEC of Roads and Transport Ismail Vadi commented that current public transport models do not include funding for minibus taxis and they, therefore, will host a series of discussions to integrate the taxi associations into the provincial budget.

Vadi added that October will see great integration between the public and private sectors of transport. “We are steadfastly committed to the modernisation of the public transport industry,” concluded Vadi.
