“The Bill seeks to provide for the establishment, organisation, regulation, functions and control of a Gauteng Transport Authority,” the Gauteng Department of Roads and Transport said in a statement on Monday.
The provincial department said the bill’s main function within the framework of existing legislation will be to perform strategic planning relating to public transport and transport infrastructure within the province.
“Furthermore, the authority will be responsible for planning, coordination, optimisation, rationalisation and facilitation of public transport functions, authorities, systems and resources within Gauteng,” the provincial department said.
