Taxi organisation Santaco said that it expected its members to return to Gauteng roads on Tuesday morning.

Taxi drivers took part in a shut down on Monday, leaving thousands of commuters scrambling to find alternative transport to get around.

They blocked major routes in a bid to squeeze government for more money, saying that the R1.1 billion relief fund did not stretch far enough.

Santaco said that it expected its members to resume normal operations today.
