|A team of Cape Town officials have returned from a fact-finding mission to Johannesburg where they learned lessons about the implementation of that cityâ€™s Bus Rapid Transit system.
The City of Cape Town plans to work closely with Johannesburg ahead of the rollout of Cape Townâ€™s IRT.
Johannesburg launched its controversial Rea Vaya Bus Rapid Transit System last month amid strong objections from taxi role-players.
City spokesperson Kylie Hatton said they planned to roll out the Integrated Rapid Transit system during the course of next year.
â€œWhat weâ€™re focusing on in Cape Town at the moment is to meet certain of our host city requirements then roll out the service requirements in 2010.â€
