Township transport

Last update 23 October 2003

The aim of this site is to collect together planning materials, transport information and the views of the residents of South African townships to provide a resource or tool kit which will further participative planning and organisation of transport in South African townships.

It is hoped that the site will be used by and incorporated in South African township web sites as they develop. It is an interim measure, an attempt to collect together useful planning and policy resources for South Africa through a combination of web monitoring and co-operation with South African ngos and other interested agencies and individuals.
