Gautrain introduces midibus service in three areas

The Gautrain Management Agency has launched a midibus service in three new areas.

The service will integrate the taxi industry with the Gautrain system.

MEC for Roads and Transport in Gauteng, Ismail Vadi joined Joanne Joseph on the Afternoon Drive.

This is a scheduled taxi service that has been introduced by Gautrain in partnership with the Alexandra Taxi Association.

What we have found is that people would like to take the Gautrain but they are concerned about the last mile getting to their actual place of work and what we are now doing through the taxi industry is making sure we provide a dedicated service.
