This transportation system has an important role in the development of a city and spurring economic growth. Public transport is the backbone of the economy as it allows workers to travel to their workplaces daily.

LEETO LA POLOKWANE AIMS TO • Reduce congestion on public roads • Improve the road networks • Create business opportunities • Employment with focus on the affected operators It is becoming increasingly clear that Leeto la Polokwane is crucial to socio-economic development as it provides a viable transport solution for commuters, something sorely lacking in the past. As milestones are achieved along the road to rolling out the system, so economic growth will follow. ■
