SANTACO-KZN is con­duct­ing road shows at the two largest taxi ranks in each of the coun­cil’s 16 KZN re­gions to pro­mote road safety and ex­cel­lent cus­tomer ser­vice among taxi driv­ers.

The first road show was held at Port Shep­stone and Umz­into yes­ter­day and the shows to­day move to eThek­wini, with stops at the Dur­ban Sta­tion and Sol­dier Way taxi ranks. Santaco-KZN will also be pro­mot­ing its Best Taxi Driver com­pe­ti­tion, which sees pas­sen­gers vote for driv­ers by paid-for SMS, as well as driver train­ing pro­grammes that aim to trans­form the taxi in­dus­try’s im­age.

The road shows form part of the coun­cil’s strug­gle to rid the in­dus­try of un­li­censed op­er­a­tors who give all taxi own­ers a bad name.
