CAPE TOWN - Uber prices in Cape Town have reportedly reached new highs on Monday after a strike by the Western Cape minibus taxi drivers got underway.
One user said she was expected to pay almost R800 for a single trip from Khayelitsha to the CBD, according to Business Insider SA.
The 30km trip normally ranges between R160 to R180.
Taxi bosses in the Western Cape said they had had enough of the lack of leadership shown by the industry's umbrella body, SA National Taxi Association Council.
It is for this reason that the main taxi groups -- Cape Amalgamated Taxi Association and Congress of Democratic Taxi Associations -- had set up the Minibus Taxi Industry Task Team to address the challenges faced.
