    Commuter's daily travels: This is what we need

    Taxis, buses and trains are the dominant means of transport for the majority of South Africans, with an estimated 70% of the population dependent on public transport.

    According to 2017 data from Stats SA , each day about 14 million people use taxis, 21 million travel on trains and a 18 million use buses.

    Taxis appear to be the most expensive mode of travel, with passengers paying an average monthly cost of R561, followed by buses (R502) and trains (R402). For some, this equates to between 50% and 70% of their monthly income. But cost is not the only worry for commuters, with many concerned about the reliability and safety of public transport. According to Arrive Alive, about 150,000 taxis are on our roads, and about three of every 36 people who die on our roads daily are killed in taxi-related incidents.
