A good and healthy working relationship between BB Polokwane Nissan and Seshego Polokwane Taxi Association (SPTA) made it possible for the association to acquire four new patrol vehicles and two Nissan taxis to help boost the industry.
The six vehicles were officially handed over to the association by dealership management on Tuesday. BB Polokwane Nissan new vehicle sales executive John Gallant indicated that they have been working closely with SPTA for the past four years and it was not the first time they do business with them. He further stated that they have provided the association with four taxis in the past and reiterated that the dealership values the taxi industry and would continue working with them. He reckoned that the patrol vehicles would assist the association to monitor the routes to ensure that all operators are registered with SPTA and again guarantee smooth running of business.
Association chairperson Solly Ledwaba emphasised that they have been working together with BB Polokwane Nissan for a while and their relationship was improving each year.
“This is the second batch of vehicles we bought from the dealership and we are very impressed with the services. The dealership takes the taxi industry serious and they are always willing to help where possible,” Ledwaba explained.
He further highlighted that the old patrol cars were not roadworthy anymore that is why they decided to get the new ones to be able to patrol the routes safely and not find themselves at the wrong end of the law. He added that the two taxis would add to the four old ones to bring the total number of SPTA taxis to six.
