Innovations in Minibus-Taxi Reform: Towards Accessible and Equitable Integrated Public Transport Networks in South African Cities - 7th and 8th March, 2018


The minibus-taxi (MBT) industry plays a core role in public transport networks in South African cities. National Treasury and the National Department of Transport are assisting cities in rethinking the infrastructure-heavy, BRT-oriented reform approach and explore a second wave of IPTN development that focuses on hybrid systems where the MBT sector is more equitably and thoughtfully included in the transport system, as well as in more integrated transport and land-use planning. The workshop therefore a platform for cities to exchange new ideas and approaches to MBT reform and improvements and help shape thinking around the next phase of the support for MBT reform and IPTN planning and implementation.
