JOHANNESBURG - Gauteng Transport MEC Ismail Vadi says establishing traffic authorities and integrating various systems can lead to more people using public transport.

A transport conference is currently underway in the province, with input from experts from 14 countries.

This week, rainfall in Gauteng has led to heavy congestion on roads which are already clogged up.

Vadi says it's important to learn from what other provinces and nations are doing.

“If you get the system right, it’s functioning optimally and it’s better coordinated, there is a great chance that people will use more public transport.”

Vadi says integration allows for skills to be pooled and does not lead to mass job losses.
