WHAT WE DO

We are responsible for the scrapping of ageing and unroadworthy fleet
of minibus taxis

Taxi Recapitalisation South Africa (TRSA) is a private entity of Anthus Services 84 (Pty) Ltd. In March 2019, the Department of Transport appointed Anthus Services 84 (Pty) Ltd as the technical partner to implement the Revised Taxi Recapitalisation Programme (RTRP).
We are responsible for the scrapping of the ageing and unroadworthy fleet of mini bus taxis with the added focus on commercially viable initiatives for long term sustainability of a safe and compliant minibus taxi-type service industry.

INCREASING ROAD SAFETY

In 2006, the Department of Transport appointed the Taxi Scrapping Administrator (TSA) for the implementation of the scrapping component of the Taxi Recapitalisation Programme (TRP). The overarching objective of the Taxi Recapitalisation Programme was to increase road safety by removing the unroadworthy taxi vehicles off the road via the scrapping process and utilising the scrapping allowance as a deposit to recapitalise with new compliant taxi vehicles.

A POSITIVE IMPACT

In March 2019, the Revised Taxi Recapitalisation Programme was implemented.  The objective, significantly different to the initial TRP but the recognisable aspect of scrapping the ageing and unroadworthy fleet of mini bus taxis and recapitalisation remained.  The additional elements were ushered in to ensure collaborative ownership and commercially viable projects for long term sustainability of a safe and compliant minibus taxi service industry.
