There has also been an increase in households who use taxis in South Africa – from 9.9 million in 2013 to 11.4 million in 2020.
The reasons for travel other than work or business were predominantly for visiting friends, family, and ancestral homes.
In 2020, more than 75% of taxi or bus users could reach their nearest rank or station within 15 min.
Statistician-General Risenga Maluleke said that train passengers had higher dissatisfaction rates, with the exception of fares.
He said that taxi and bus passengers were particularly dissatisfied with facilities at ranks or stations and the behaviour of taxi and bus drivers.
