Nolutshungu, Ms N to ask the Minister of Transport
Given that taxi operators were promised a taxi subsidy which would be implemented by April 2021 and yet almost a year later not a single taxi has received the specified subsidy, by what date will the taxi subsidy be implemented?
The Department is expediting the finalisation of the public transport subsidy policy that proposes specific measures that will be implemented in the short, medium and long term. The policy document makes recommendations for the subsidisation of the taxi industry. The Department is preparing the policy draft for submission to Cabinet for approval to embark on stakeholder consultation.
