Law enforcement personnel will be out in full force to monitor any eventualities that could arise from Tuesday’s planned taxi strike.
Members of the Ekurhuleni Taxi Industry are set to march from Kempton Park to the Ekurhuleni Metro Council in Germiston on Gauteng’s East Rand.
The march is over delays in the completion of the Harambee Bus Rapid Transit system.
There will be no Harambee bus service on Tuesday, 20 March 18 due to the Ekurhuleni Taxi Industry strike. The City of Ekurhuleni apologises for the inconvenience. For more information or service related issues please contact the Call Centre 0860 543 000. #CoeHarambee pic.twitter.com/9aDfW1UuYM

Major disruptions are expected from the Kempton Park CBD, the R21,R24 Highways and the Germiston Civic Centre as a result of a planned taxi protest.
As a result of the protest the City of Ekurhuleni will stop all bus services for the day.
Therefore, commuters are advised to make alternative transport arrangements.
Buses will resume operation from Thursday.
Law enforcement agencies will be keeping a close eye on the protest march.
We hope the city of Ekurhuleni and the taxi industry in the metro will find ways to resolve their issues on BRT. However, the problem with these BRTs is that there’s one integrated rapid public transport network strategy concept but leaving cities to decide the actual model.
