E-hailing mediation looks to finally iron out industry troubles

South Africa: The Gauteng Department of Roads and Transport is meeting with e-hailing industry stakeholders today, as part of the commencement of the mediation process that seeks to tackle industry conflicts.

The Gauteng e-Hailing Partners Council (GEPCO) and the executives of e-hailing firms Uber and Bolt are locked-up in talks with Gauteng MEC for public transport and roads infrastructure Jacob Mamabolo, in the first phase of a process that is expected to result in the parties reaching an agreement in relation to several contentious industry issues.

The mediation process comes after a meeting was held in October last year between the department, various e-hailing governing bodies and government stakeholders, to bring to light challenges faced by e-hailing drivers and operators in the sector.

These include what they label “exploitation”, low wages, safety issues, rider fare structuring and the urgent need for regulation of the sector.
