Johannesburg - There is a need for integrated transport
system for three Gauteng municipalities, their mayors said on Monday.
"There is a compelling case for the greater
collaboration..," said City of Tshwane mayor Kgosientso Ramokgopa.
During The New Age's Business Breakfast debate on SABC2,
Ramokgopa said the current development of a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system was
an indication of the need to provide access to efficient transport between the
BRT has been rolled out in the City of Johannesburg and it
is yet to be rolled out in Tshwane.
Ekurhuleni Metro's mayor Mondli Gungubele said the growth of
Gauteng's economy needed a united approach rather than operating in isolation.
"We have identified that the seamless movement is key
to economy...," said Gungubele.
The City of Johannesburg's mayor Parks Tau said the city was
working towards increasing funding through private-public partnership for
infrastructure development and maintenance of ageing infrastructure.
BRT in the city is being rolled out in phases.
