Halfway Toyota in Howick has partnered with local minibus taxi associations and metered taxi owners to sanitise and deep clean hundreds of vehicles.

Launched on Wednesday, the programme will be rolled out in Mpophomeni, Impendle, Mooi River, Bulwer, Boston, Underberg and Pietermaritzburg in the coming weeks.

General manager, Brandon Brokesha, said the initiative was part of a nationwide campaign, implemented by the company, to try and stop the spread of Covid-19 and potentially save the lives of passengers.

“The company wanted to do something to give back to our communities, many of whom have bought vehicles through our network,” he added.

More than 100 taxis on Wednesday went through a drive-through cleaning station at Halfway Toyota’s premises in Howick.
