Jo'burg CBD's Integrated Transport Map

Last week, as I got out of the Gautrain's Park Station, I got a pamphlet "Integrated Transport Map", covering most of the Jo'burg CBD. There are two things that stand out immediately - the lack of minibus-taxi routes depicted in the map, and how sparsely official transport lines actually cover the city.

The map covers Reya Vaya, Gautrain Busses and Metro Busses - but these seem to be confined to a very narrow area within Jo'burg CBD. The lack of minibus taxi routes mean that the map is hardly integrated, and it seems that most of Jo'burg is inaccessible.

No wonder the taxi drivers get pissed off ...

Oh, and there doesn't seem to be an online version either!
