Activist group Unite Behind has speculated as to the possible motives behind recent arson attacks on Metrorail trains.
It's highlighted a possible link to competition from the taxi industry.
A Metrorail train carriage caught fire at Cape Town station on Saturday causing an estimated R30 million of damage.
It's the fifth train fire in Cape Town in the last two months, crippling an already strained infrastructure.
