The mini-bus industry has been hailed as a major breakthrough in public transport. It fills a much needed void in the hierachy of public transport. However, despite its success story the industry is facing problems. This study attempts to examine and understand the dynamics of the mini-bus industry in South Africa, with specific reference to mini-bus operations in the study area of Overport. The aim is to examine and highlight the problems in the industry and to formulate solutions and/or policy options for recommendations through the identification of appropriate planning interventions to enable the mini-bus to make a more efficient contribution to public transport.
