The Polokwane United Local and Long Distance Taxi Association has distanced itself from allegations that its members were not consulted about the removal of the taxi rank from the city centre to its CBD.
Association chairman Kgopi Legodi said his organisation was working with the Polokwane municipality and Limpopo department of roads and transport.
"We are in consultations with them," he said. "We are happy that there is development in our town."
Sowetan published a story last month claiming that the municipality and department had decided to remove the rank without consultation.
"Our members at large and the image of the organisation have been negatively affected by the report," Legodi said.
"Relevant stakeholders and organisations in Gauteng, Mpumalanga and North West, and our customers have also been affected."
