The Kazerne Intermodal Transport facility is a state of the art facility, which will accommodate long-distance and cross-border taxis and buses, create a variety of economic opportunities through retail facilities, provide social amenities for Inner City users and residents and provide a high-quality commuter environment announced Executive Mayor, Councillor Mpho Park Tau at a sod turning ceremony held in the inner city of Johannesburg.

The facility will provide both holding and ranking facilities for long-distance (cross-border) taxis and buses.  Kaserne Intermodal facility is a key project in the Inner City Roadmap under the sustainability pillar towards an integrated efficient transportation system in the Inner City. This transport facility further provides an opportunity to create stronger ties both socially and economically with other African countries said Mayor Tau.

The Kazerne Intermodal Transport Facility will boast an impressive 3100 square metres of retail space which includes 160 stalls. It will have holding space for 648 taxis; ranking space for 158 taxis and ranking for 20 buses.
