October was declared Transport Month in 2005. It seeks to raise awareness of the significant role transport plays in the economy. An effective transport system has a substantial impact on both the economic and social fabric of a country as it influences the economy in many ways, and contributes about 6.5% of GDP in South Africa.

In this edition of the Newsletter you can win a spa treatment, or receive 40% discount on your car rental and more.
