Johannesburg -

More than 46 000 taxis have registered for etolling in Gauteng, the SA National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) said on Monday.

“There are clear benefits for taxi operators who are registered for e-toll,” spokesman Vusi Mona said.

The taxis which have registered were exempt from the payment of etolls.

Mona said Sanral had undertaken to set aside the e-tolls due by qualifying public transport vehicles that have already received invoices.

“We want to thank the South African National Taxi Council (Santaco) for the principled stand it took in support of e-tolling and for encouraging its members to register,” Mona said.
