The Imizamo Yethu community policing forum (CPF) says commuters in the area are living in fear as taxi violence escalates.
Four people were killed and two more wounded early on Monday morning near the taxi rank in Hout Bay.
It's the second deadly shooting in the area in the space of just a few days.
The CPF's Vincent Sondladla says that taxi feuds have been ongoing for several months over illegal taxi operators using the Hout Bay - Cape Town route.
Sondladla claims illegal taxi operators have been able to take advantage due to an insufficient supply of licenced taxis and MyCiti buses.
The lack of alternative forms of transport has left Imizamo Yethu residents caught in between the taxi violence as they try to travel to and from school and places of work.
Sondladla believes taxis should be suspended while the provincial transport department works to resolve the problem.
Commuters are living in fear, they don't know how they can escape this... MyCiti is running full and run on an hourly schedule.— Vincent Sondladla, Deputy Chair - Imizamo Yethu CPF
It's people from outside and people from within the Hout Bay community who have been involved in this.— Vincent Sondladla, Deputy Chair - Imizamo Yethu CPF
Yes, some of the drivers live in Imizamo Yethu.— Vincent Sondladla, Deputy Chair - Imizamo Yethu CPF
