E-hailing taxis under attack in Western Cape
E-hailing taxis (Uber, Taxify) are under attack in the Western Cape.
Western Cape Metered Taxi vice chairperson David Drummond says the issue is not the area in which the e-hailing services operate but the drivers and the clients.
Speaking to John Maytham, Drummond says more training is needed for the operators.
It is not a specific area that is the problem.David Drummond, Vice chairman - Western Cape Metered Taxi
The situation is out of control and has been for the past two years. There are a lot of unreported cases out there.David Drummond, Vice chairman - Western Cape Metered Taxi
Drummond says they have pushed for training for a couple of years but this has not materialised.
We've had a lot of foreign drivers joining the e-hailing and meter taxis but these guys are not familiar with the city and the people and they are soft targets.David Drummond, Vice chairman - Western Cape Metered Taxi
