Taxis to strike over BRT

The taxi industry is to embark on an indefinite strike from September 1, the day after the launch of the Bus Rapid Transit system in Joburg.

Addressing the media, the United Taxi Association Forum (Utaf) and the South African National Taxi Association said government had not acted in good faith by introducing the BRT. The two associations are also in the process of obtaining a court interdict to stop the Joburg BRT.

Chairperson Ralph Jones said that the agreement was that a National Joint Working Group would be formed to start negotiations.
