Siphesihle Dube - Spokesperson for the Minister of Transport and Public Works joined us on the line. The Western Cape Department of Transport and Public Works signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the South African National Small Bus Operators Council in the Western Cape. The intention of the MOU is: To serve as a guideline which will govern the relationship between the Department and SANSBOC-WC, this would enable the department to give the necessary assistance and attention aimed at creating an enabling environment for the bus operators to provide a quality service that will allow for economic self-sustainability.
- To support, encourage and promote the constructive involvement of the SBOs into the main stream formal bus industry and related services in South Africa, specifically the Western Cape.
- To establish structures that will enable the Department (inclusive of all provincial and local governmental structures) and SANSBOC-WC to develop and implement shared strategies for advancing the role of the SBOs as an integral part of the overall provision of public transport in the Western Cape.
