Minister Joe Maswanganyi has called on the public to use public transport during Transport month in October in an effort to reduce traffic congestion.
Maswanganyi spoke to the SABC at the launch of Transport Month in Ekurhuleni. “Public transport in South Africa is safe. There are challenges with metro rail we are attending to them we are having a manufacturing program here in Nigel where we are going to manufacture 580 trains. taxis carries 68% of commuters in South Africa. If a taxi doesn’t have an operating permit we take it off the road. That is our principle we don’t compromise on safety.”
