Mbombela, a city formerly known as Nelspruit, is urbanising at a rapid pace with a great deal of investment going towards infrastructure and community development. This development has seen an increase in demand for taxi services, which has seen more operators in the area start and grow their businesses.
SA Taxi is pleased to announce the opening of a new branch in Mbombela. This new full-service branch, located at The Grove Shopping Centre at the corner of White River Road and Gorge Street in Riverside, will provide the community with a wide range of customer services including insurance and access to other SA Taxi products.
“SA Taxi is proud to serve the community by offering our customer service and insurance products to them on location, which will allow us to meet their business needs in a more personalised manner. This branch strengthens our presence in the Mpumalanga province and provides additional convenience to our existing members as well as new ones in the Mbombela community as a whole.” – noted Matsidikanye Motswane, Corporate Affairs Executive at SA Taxi
He added, “We’re growing each year, and remain focused on providing our customers with remarkable value, through exceptional products, new innovations and services that help ensure the sustainability of the minibus taxi industry. The Mbombela branch opens with a very strong and experienced team that will meet customers’ needs and exceed their expectations. We are also doing the same at our branches in Durban, Cape Town, and our head office in Johannesburg and are looking forward to doing the same good work in Mbombela.”
The Mbombela Branch Manager is Vuyisile Vuthela, who has previously been the stakeholder liaison officer in Mpumalanga for over two years. Vuyisile has more than 10 years’ experience in the taxi industry and will oversee all operational and service activities of the branch. He noted: “I’m greatly looking forward to working with existing and new members in Mbombela and the surrounding towns. After many years of working for SA Taxi, I am doing what I’ve always wanted to do—which is to work closely with the minibus taxi community and being in the forefront of servicing an industry that transports over 15 million commuters daily.”
SA Taxi encourages the public to stop by the new office and say hello to their experienced Mbombela team whilst adhering to Covid-19 safety protocols. The branch is open Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 5:00pm and the branch staff is ready to assist members of the taxi community and create a sustainable environment for the minibus taxi industry in Mpumalanga.
