“This is a milestone and I only had to walk the last few yards to reach this point. It is, therefore, important to acknowledge the hard work of the former MMC and the officials. I am ecstatic to have reached this point as we all worked very hard to attain a unified voice among the crucial role players.

“We made a conscious decision to halt the buses during the national bus strike for safety reasons and trust that the ongoing wage negotiations will reach a resolution soon,” Daniels said.

Algoa Taxi Association, Northern Areas Taxi Association, Norwich Taxi Association and East Cape Taxi Association signed memoranda of understanding with the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality in 2016 which means that all 10 taxi associations operating in Nelson Mandela Bay are part of operations.

Andile Andries, deputy chairperson of Santaco Nelson Mandela region and chairperson of Uncedo Taxi Association Uitenhage district, said they want the IPTS in Nelson Mandela Bay and to be part of the bigger picture.

He concluded saying, “We are confident that this system will improve the lives of the residents of the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality.

“We will travel this journey with you.”
