The South African National Taxi Council says taxi operators' next step will be either a complete withdrawal of services in the Soweto area, or a full blown strike.
Taxi operators are to meet tomorrow to decide on their way forward.
This follows the North Gauteng High Court’s dismissal of their urgent application to halt the implementation of the Bus Rapid Transit System.
Government says the BRT system will begin in Johannesburg and Soweto next week, and be expanded initially to Pretoria, Cape Town and Port Elizabeth.
