'CoCt irresponsible to let commuters reload MyCiTi cards'
Khayelitsha Development Forum (KDF) chairperson Ndithini Thyido says it is irresponsible for the City of Cape Town to let Khayelitsha and Mitchells Plain residents who use MyCiti N2 Express route service reload their cards while knowing the contract is coming to an end.
The service has been suspended due to a contractual dispute between the joint venture company that operates on that route, which includes the City, Golden Arrow Bus Services and Codeta.
Congress of Democratic Taxi Associations (Codeta) refused to sign a new contract stating the unhappiness in opportunities afforded to Golden Arrow and themselves.
Thyido says this dispute is frustrating for commuters and Codeta and the City should do better in managing the situation.
We are talking about the impact of a city that was aware that the negotiation is going nowhere to finding a solution. Therefore, the people who are dependant on the services should have at least been informed and an alternative means of transport is negotiated.Ndithini Thyido, Chairperson - Khayelitsha Development Forum
According to Thyido, KDF is avoiding interfering in transactional agreements between business and municipality but because the situation has become a crisis, it is considering engaging with Codeta.
He advises that all parties involved should to start acting in the best interest of the people.
