CAPE TOWN – Du Noon commuters in the Western Cape hope taxi traffic will return to normal from Wednesday.

Taxi drivers stopped their minibuses for the second day, closing this type of transport in the province.

After Monday’s Golden Arrow and MyCiTi bus arson in Khayelit, law enforcement stepped up patrols Tuesday in high-risk areas including Mitchells Plain, Du Noon and Atlantis.

Some taxi passengers in Du Noon walk from the community to their jobs in Parklands and Sunningdale.

“If they’re on strike for themselves, they can just let the buses pass,” said one passenger.

In Belleville too, these passengers had no choice but to walk to their destination.

“I’ll try to hitchhike from here and see if I can get a lift,” said another passenger.

The City of Cape Town said MyCiTi bus services were back to normal on Tuesday, but could be altered if necessary.
