As the Government moves to ease restrictions aimed at preventing the spread of the coronavirus, it has issued tough rules to regulate public transport in Kampala, when operations resume on June 4.

Taxis will first be registered and assigned to operate on designated routes.

Hitherto, taxis have been operating freely on routes. The taxis will also be restricted to stop at designated places / stages.

 The Government has also banned touts who normally congest taxi parking areas, directing passengers to vehicles. Public transport was stopped mid-March as one way to check COVID-19 spread.
