Passengers need to decide if they want to board a full taxi or not, according to Santaco President, Phillip Taaibosch.

“The other thing is that it is up to you whether you want to get into a taxi which is full capacity, it is up to you,” said Taaibosch. Santaco announced that from Monday taxis will load at 100% capacity.

The taxi association also resolved that long-distance operators must resume work without permits.In Pretoria, some taxi operators remain defiant about transporting a full load of passengers.

A Taxi driver says he is not worried about safety as masks and sanitisers are being used.

“We are going to use a mask each and every time and sanatize all the time. Passengers will be safe we are not going to be afraid because our passengers are safe,” said long-distance taxi driver, Michael Mphela.

The resolution to go against the government’s COVID-19 guidelines comes after talks with Transport Minister, Fikile Mbalula failed.
