TCT is committed to investing in integrated transport and providing performance-oriented service delivery. It is therefore developing a pipeline of investment opportunities across the full life-cycle of integrated transport. Some of these opportunities will be delivered by TCT itself, while others will be open to private sector partners.

Investment Pipeline Methodology

The TCT Investment Pipeline has drawn from lessons learnt in service delivery in the transport environment in Cape Town and resultant best practice. The Investment Pipeline has been categorised along the transport continuum into six categories from Governance through to Logistics. The TCT Investment Pipeline then itemises projected investment initiatives which could be internally or externally structured. The Pipeline elaborates on initiatives that are planned for over the next five years.
