TAXI COUNCIL SHOWS DRIVERS HOW
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.
