PER - Public Transport in Metros
South Africa’s approach to the provision of public transport is encapsulated in the Public Transport Strategy and Action Plan (2007) and the National Land Transport Act (2009). Together, these envisage city-wide, fully integrated, multi-modal, mass rapid public transport networks delivered and managed largely by local governments. The aim is to shift the delivery of public transport away from the present model, which is based on operator-controlled, commuter-based, unimodal routes.​​
