mycitiWeekend Argus reports that taxi association Codeta is canvassing members in response to the City of Cape Town’s ultimatum regarding the operation of the MyCiTi N2 Express.  

Last Thursday the City told shareholders of the N2 Express Company, which include taxi associations Codeta and Mitchells Plain Route Six, that it had set a 28 September deadline for the bus service to be reinstated, almost four months after it ground to a halt.  The city warned it would appoint a different company to operate the N2 Express Service as engagements with the shareholders aimed at concluding a new agreement had failed to resolve the impasse.  The suspension of the N2 Express service has had a considerable impact on the Khayelitsha and Mitchells Plain commuters.  The N2 Express service, which began operating from Khayelitsha and Mitchells Plain to the Cape Town CBD in 2014, offered a critical transport option to the unreliable Metrorail service.  Codeta said it would make its decision known before the 28 September deadline.
