E-Hailing services have disrupted the SA business model of metered taxis

The Competition Commission has recommended that the regulatory framework for e-hailing and metered taxis should be uniform to create an even competitive environment.

The commission released the final recommendations of the 2020 Public Transport Market Inquiry report yesterday.

The commission says the entry of e-hailing services into South Africa disrupted the business model of metered taxis and that the growing popularity of e-hailing services also caught regulatory authorities off-guard.
