Mashigo said the metro agreed to provide efficient and continuous public transport services, as part of its legislative function, particularly in Mamelodi, upon the withdrawal of services by Autopax.

Autopax had been requested by the Gauteng department of roads and transport (GDRT) to step in and provide services to Mamelodi commuters when Putco (Pty) Ltd voluntarily surrendered its contract to the GDRT during 2015.

Mashigo said the takeover is linked to strategic objectives to promote good governance.
