Bridge Taxi Finance provides affordable credit facilities to South African entrepreneurs in the minibus taxi industry. Founded in 2013, Bridge Taxi Finance plays a crucial role in South Africa’s public transport sector by empowering minibus taxi operators to provide their clients with safe, secure and reliable transport.
South Africa’s taxi industry plays a vital role in the country’s economy, accounting for over 70% of all public transport trips and is the most widely used form of public transport in Africa. This means over 15 million South Africans make use of minibus taxis to get to and from work every day.
An efficient public transport system is a core enabler of a country’s economy, critical to development. Investment in this sector is essential to support economic growth. At Bridge Taxi Finance, we help to make that happen.
At Bridge Taxi Finance we had a vision to source quality vehicles at an affordable cost so that we could provide accessible finance to entrepreneurs – many of whom are first-time taxi owners who have been historically excluded from accessing finance from formal institutions.
Our aim is to build a sustainable vehicle finance operation that plays a part in improving public transport for millions of South Africans, while at the same time helps taxi owners grow sustainable businesses.
