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 metros.

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.
