The President of South Africa, Mr Cyril Ramaphosa announced on Monday evening that there will be a Nationwide Lockdown. It was noted that some people will be working such as police, traffic police, healthcare workers and retail personnel.
With the number of Covid-19 cases increasing rapidly, everyone has been asking if the taxi operations, especially in Embalenhle and Secunda will be continuing.
The Bulletin can confirm that the taxis will operate under strict observation from all stakeholders involved.
The taxis will start operating from 05h00 to 09h00 in the morning and again from 16h00 to 20h00. All those making use of taxis as a form of transport must have a letter of authority from their respective places of work, all taxis must be sanitised and everyone must wear face masks.
There will not be any long-distance taxis operating until 16 April.
