The National Land Transport Amendment Act and Economic Regulation of Transport Act have been gazetted but are yet to be operationalised.

Once in force, the National Land Transport Amendment Act is expected to address challenges experienced in implementing the principal statute, which gave practical effect to the 2007 Public Transport Strategy & Action Plan – among other things introducing bus rapid transit in most metros.

When commenced, the Economic Regulation of Transport Act will establish two parallel independent but integrated agencies to be tasked with regulating all rail, aviation, maritime and road transport. One will focus on technical, administrative and enforcement matters; the other will serve as an adjudicative entity.

Both new statutes allow the President to set different dates for different provisions to come into effect.
