Traffic along the Main Road between Claremont and Cape Town is expected to be disrupted on Tuesday, due to protest action by the Peninsula Taxi Association.
The association is objecting to UCT's Jammie Shuttle Service, which is a free service to students of the university.
Peninsula Taxi Association spokesperson Galied Behardien says, Jammie Shuttles is operating illegally along the Main Road, by transporting students between Claremont and Rondebosch.
"The operating permit held by Jammie Shuttles limits it to working this route between 6PM and 12AM only, and because they are operating outside their stipulated time it is impacting the Peninsula Taxi Association negatively," says Behardien.
According to Behardien the authorities needs to be more consistent and implement the law where it has been obstructed. The protest is expected to last until 2pm.
