Paper presented at the 31st Annual Southern African Transport Conference 9-12 July 2012 "Getting Southern Africa to Work", CSIR International Convention Centre, Pretoria, South Africa.
The intention of the Cape Winelands District Municipality (CWDM) is to establish an efficiently operated and integrated public transport system for its area. The first step in this process is the preparation of an efficient and basic Integrated Public Transport Network (IPTN) Framework for the district that will endeavour to integrate all modes of transport such as rail, bus, midi and minibus. This framework will then assists and guide the local municipalities within the Cape Winelands District Municipality in designing, implementing and managing their local public transport operations.
The development of the IPTN for the CWDM area is in line with Government’s overall objective as reflected in Public Transport Strategy and Action Plan (2007) and the 2011 – 12 guidelines and requirements for the application of Public Transport Infrastructure and systems (PTIS) grants, dated 27 June 2011 namely to transform the public transport sector in the region into a safe, secure, and high-quality experience for the passenger. The National Land Transport Act and the approved National Public Transport Strategy and Action Plan are used as the guiding principles for the development of the CWDM IPTN framework.
The IPTN is still a work in progress and will be rolled out over a number of years. This paper will briefly deal with the different elements of the completed IPTN Framework (First phase in a series of five phases) and the proposed implementation plan – forming part of this framework - in terms of the future phases.
