THE signing of the last four taxi associations puts Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality on route with the implementation of its Integrated Public Transport System (IPTS) as all 10 associations are now on board.

Uncedo Taxi Association Port Elizabeth District, Uncedo Taxi Association Uitenhage District, Uitenhage District Association and Uitenhage Taxi Association all signed memoranda of understanding with the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality at the Port Elizabeth City Hall last Thursday.

In March, the Port Elizabeth District Taxi Association and the Western Suburbs Taxi Association signed the same agreement.

Member of the Mayoral Committee for Roads and Transport Councillor Marlon Daniels said ongoing discussions were taking place to bring Algoa Bus Company (ABC) on board and to thrash out operational issues and the final composition of the operating company.

Daniels thanked his predecessor Rano Kayser for his role in attaining this milestone.
