Suburbanites who use prepares among Umlazi and KwaMnyandu train stations in KZN have been left abandoned since Wednesday, 3 February.
This comes after a fight began among Prasa and taxi managers.
As per Prasa representative, Carol Mokoaleli, the quarrel started a couple of days after they sent their armada to move suburbanites among Umlazi and KwaMnyandu.
"The taxi managers said they were not going to permit Prasa to utilize both the railroad line just as the street," said Mokoeleli.
She said the taxi supervisors needed the rail organization to permit them to move train workers at whatever point a need emerged.
"Prasa and taxi managers recently had gatherings about the matter, however no last understanding was reached. That is the reason we wound up utilizing our own armada among Umlazi and KwaMnyandu train stations after a link was taken," she said.
Mokoaleli said they were doing this trying to oblige workers who purchased week by week train tickets.
"They're presently abandoned on the grounds that we don't have some other elective approach to move them. Fortunately, we met them promptly and clarified the circumstance is outside our ability to control," she said.
Santaco KZN executive, Boy Zondi, said they were not going to permit Prasa to assume control over their streets.
"I'm certain they wouldn't care for us driving on their rail line. The gatherings that were recently begun need to proceed so an understanding can be reached."
Suburbanite Zinhle Phungula said: "It's awkward in light of the fact that when we pay for a week by week tickets, we think we are arranged for the remainder of the week. In any case, presently we need to go through additional cash to will work."
