The global Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in new National Disaster Management Act regulations in South Africa. These regulations affected public transport operations. The Gauteng Department of Roads and Transport requested assistance from the CSIR with technological tools in relation to compliance as well as with interventions to help limit the spread of the corona virus in public transport in Gauteng. Various technological tools were developed, first to identify the industry players, register the industry players and then assist them with compliance recording and reporting.
