The United Taxi Association Forum on Monday said it was in the process of applying for a strike notice over the controversial Bus Rapid Transit system Last week the City of announced it would be introducing three more bus routes in Soweto and the East Rand from May.

The association’s Ralf Jones said city officials have not bothered to consult taxi bosses about BRT developments, and as a result they are losing money.

“What we are saying is that we need to engage and talk, but it seems they are not willing to talk to us, they are just implementing [plans],” he said.
