Public transport requires greater integration

4th October 2019 By: Tasneem Bulbulia - Creamer Media Reporter

Public transport in the country is not performing effectively, efficiently and to its full potential, owing to the various modes of public transport not being integrated.

This was indicated by a representative from the Department of Transport during a Transport Forum discussion on bus-rapid transit systems, held in Johannesburg this week.

Therefore, to ensure a safe, efficient and comfortable transport journey for commuters, the representative emphasised the need for all spheres of government to pursue greater integration of the various modes of transport.

Moreover, there was a need to optimise the current resources made available for the roll-out of public transport projects.
