An overview

S

PEND any amount of time in Joburg's rush hour traffic and you will get some idea of the huge number of vehicles on the city's 9 000 kilometres of roads.

Transport shapes the way city dwellers live, and ensures the survival of the city itself - taking residents from home to work, schools, hospitals, stadiums, service providers, shops and entertainment. And Joburg's transportation department makes sure that public and private transport flows smoothly for the benefit of all users.

Key document
Gautrain Feeder and Distribution Services Study - Final Draft. 

It is responsible for the development of strategy and programmes, and plans to direct and manage the private, business and public transport systems in Johannesburg towards a common, long-term City vision.

It plays a key role in realising this vision - to turn Johannesburg into a world-class African City - through co-ordinating transport around the city.

And it aims to achieve its goal by focusing on public transport and a well-developed and well-maintained roads and stormwater drainage infrastructure, able to connect businesses, people and places in a sustainable and cost-effective manner. In turn this will boost standards of living and improve the overall competitiveness and growth of the local economy.

Directorates

The department has a raft of responsibilities. It puts in place transport policy and public transport, plans and installs transport infrastructure, takes care of road and transport safety and runs the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ projects relating to transport.

To make sure that roads and public transport work towards the same goal of an efficient transport system, the department oversees two other City entities:

The JRA builds and maintains roads, bridges and stormwater systems and takes care of traffic management. Metrobus is the City's public transport provider.
