Transport support to essential services employees and employers
The Western Cape Department of Transport and Public Works is assessing ongoing transport challenges experienced by essential service workers, government employees and employers during the Covid-19 lockdown.
We urge all essential service employers who are experiencing problems to contact the Department on HOD.TransportPublicWorks@westerncape.gov.za, stating the nature of their transport challenge. Please provide specific details, including number of people that need to be transported, from where, to where, at what time.
The Department will then finalise comprehensive solutions and recommendations to deal with these challenges. We remind essential services employees and employers that the approved times for traveling are from 05:00 (5 am) to 09:00 (9 am), and again from 16:00 (4 pm) to 20:00 (8 pm).
Transport needs are dynamic, and we remain committed to meeting changing transport needs as they arise.
