CAPE TOWN – Cape Town taxi drivers have called on transport authorities to fully restore train services on the metro.

On the first day of a two-day stay of taxi operators in the Western Cape province, hundreds of passengers were left stranded. Many people are left to look for alternative transport.

One man from Kuilsriver explained that he had to walk to Belleville on Monday morning because he had no other means of transportation.

“The government should open the trains so that we can use them. But now there are no trains where we will stop and sometimes the bus does not run,” he said.

He explained that he was traveling to Durbanville for work and was concerned about his journey home.

Law enforcement officials were on high alert in Khaelichi after the Golden Arrow and the MyCiTi bus were set on fire on Monday morning.
