The South and North Beach Taxi Association has fired all conductors for bad behaviour towards commuters‚ poor hygiene‚ overloading vehicles and involvement in criminal activities.
In a post on its official Facebook page on Thursday‚ the association advised commuters boarding taxis operating along Durban’s Golden Mile to pay the exact fare as conductors would no longer be on board to provide change.
“Be advised that all the conductors have been dismissed as from today‚ November 1. We have hired some of the conductors to be rank marshals‚” the association said.
A month ago‚ the association announced that it would be “taking conductors out of operation due to an “endless list of reasons.”
Those reasons included the conductors being rude to commuters.
“Some of them are involved in criminal activities. They are the reason for most taxis to overload‚” it said.
