The City of Cape Town’s transport authority issued a tender on Friday for the provision of Tuk-Tuk public transport services.
The city is looking at appointing public transport operators who will operate 80 tuk-tuk vehicles across 8 areas in Cape Town.
According to Brett Herron, MAYCO for Transport, this is the first time they have issued a commercial contract. He says it’s a good opportunity for transport authority to test the quality of the service.
Listen to the full conversation on The John Maytham Show:
The service is meant to be for short trips, and the fares are not determined by the city, but the tender would have to disclose how much they will be charging— Brett Herron, MAYCO for Transport
Herron says that if all goes according to plan he would like to see the Tuk-Tuk public transport services in operation by September 2016.
