Diepsloot gets new taxi rank
Taxi officials say the new rank in Diepsloot has empowered the community.
JOHANNESBURG - The United Taxi Association Forum (UTAF) on Friday said it is confident that a new taxi rank in Diepsloot, north of Johannesburg will demonstrate that there is more to the industry than the negative perspective that exists.
Members of the community have been using the facility since Tuesday when it was officially opened.
The forum's chairman Ralph Jones said government's involvement in this initiative is evidence enough that the industry is constantly evolving.
"It is exciting. Diepsloot feels empowered because we ploughed back to the community. People from the Diepsloot were hired for this project."
