JOHANNESBURG - Gauteng Transport MEC Ismail Vadi says the department will launch an e-ticket system in the taxi industry which will see a cashless payment method.

Vadi says the department has cracked down on the taxi industry this year and there have been improvements.
"We'll be launching the concept of an e-ticket for the taxi industry. In fact, I think the date is 17 October and it will be done in Tshwane.
"The pilot study had been done and the testing has been done and I think we can begin to launch the concept. We're moving toward the cashless system of running the taxi industry."
