40 Million has been invested in the upgrade of the Dunoon Public Transport Interchange (PTI) by the City of Cape Town.
The first phase was completed earlier this year while the second and last phase is expected to be completed by the end of September 2021. The interchange includes formal trading kiosks, public ablution facilities, three offices, a boardroom, a designated enforcement office and loading facilities for the minibus-taxis.
The second phase includes a multiple level building, a covered waiting area for commuters and public open spaces.
Public Transport Interchanges play a pivotal role in the public transport system and thousands of residents depend on them to get to work, school and other services across the city. Thus, the upgraded facility in Dunoon will also mean an improved customer experience for all of those who visit the facility.
Apart from being aesthetically pleasing the new facility will help taxis to operate in a formal and organised manner,’ said Councillor Rob Quintas, the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Transport.
